How Do We Do It?

With the support of library patrons, citizens, foundations and local businesses we are building a fund which will grow and protect the library from future fiscal uncertainties. It will also enable the library to do basic capital repairs and maintain a high-quality and diverse collection. But we need your help.


Did You Know?

The Thomas Memorial Library is about more than just checking out books! In the past two years, the Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Thomas Memorial Library have sponsored:

  • A Tax Cap Forum attended by 200 Cape Citizens and filmed for use by libraries throughout Maine
  • A series on “Healthy Aging” through the Cape Community Services
  • A “Diverse Voices” Lecture Series which brought six acclaimed authors to Cape Elizabeth.
  • Rachel Davis' ever-popular children's story hours
  • Wayne from Maine children's music performance and other summer highlights.
  • Rotating art shows of local artists
  • The annual Friends of the Library Fall Book & Bake Sale
