About Us

The Friends of the Library is an organization separate and apart from the Chatham Area Public Library and that the Friends of the Library has its own Board and its own goals and purposes.

Friends funds and Library funds shall not be commingled or integrated, except that gifts from Friends may be accepted by the Library. Monetary gifts shall become solely the funds of the Library but shall be expended for the purpose specified by the Friends.
