The Friends of the Peterborough Town Library received a $2,500 donation from the Glass Museum on Wednesday, Oct. 20.

The donation, intended to support programs for teens, was made in memory of Joel Green, a longtime Thing in the Spring supporter and library patron.

The Glass Museum is a Peterborough-based non-profit group that has hosted The Thing in the Spring music festival for over 10 years. Board members and lead organizer Eric Gagne hosted a one-day festival this September and pledged all proceeds to local nonprofit organizations including Avenue A, The River Center, Nova Arts and Friends of the Peterborough Town Library.

“This funding will go directly to increasing teen programs and opening up more opportunities for youth,” said Aimee LaRue, Public Services and Teen Librarian at Peterborough Town Library.

The Friends of the Peterborough Town Library is a non-profit group of supporters of the library. Their primary mission is to raise and steward funds for items and programs that are not included in the library’s annual budget.
