Brief History of the Friends of the Wells Public Library  
The Friends of the Wells Public Library group has been in existence since the library was built, starting with five women from Wells, and steadily increasing to its present membership of 120 men and women.

In 1980 the Friends became incorporated and the Constitution and bylaws were approved by the State of Maine. They are members of the Friends of the Library USA (FOLUSA), and Friends of Maine Libraries (FoML.)

The Friends of the Wells Public Library has raised over $135,000 for the Library since 1979.
