About the Friends of the Fiske
The Friends of the Fiske is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to fill funding gaps and allow the Fiske Public Library to offer quality programs and materials beyond what the town budget provides. This includes sponsoring programs for children and adults as well as upgrades to technology for the librarians and library patrons.

Patrons may sign up at any time of the year. As a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN: 22-2581040) your contribution to the Friends of the Fiske may be tax-deductible.
