Friends of the Cuba Library, Inc (Friends) have been promoting the Cuba Circulating Library (Library) since their formation in November 1988. Since their inception, Friends have actively supported children’s programming, including regularly scheduled story hours and classes, special events and guests, and the summer reading programs. Friends have also helped with adult programming by underwriting special programs and guests, such as the Spring Tea, and by purchasing audio-visual materials. When asked, Friends assists with special needs outside of programming. For example, in 2000 Friends purchased the Circulation Desk for the newly renovated Library.
