Welcome to Friends Free Library, open to the entire Germantown Friends School community as a learning commons, encouraging a love of reading as well as helping students become effective researchers and sharers of information. The Library is also open to community members of neighboring Germantown. Individual local users may borrow books and access the internet. Community daycare centers bring in groups for story hours and “library time.” The Library collection consists of approximately 50,000 volumes, newspapers and magazines as well as an active collection of online research databases. Feel free to “ask a Librarian” either in person, by phone or email anytime.
