About Us

The Thomas Memorial Library Foundation raises funds to ensure a great library reaches and serves all people in Cape Elizabeth for generations to come.

How Do We Do It?

We are building a fund to support the future. This will enable our library to maintain a high quality and diverse collection, expand opportunities for programming, and provide furnishings and equipment for our newly-renovated facility scheduled to open late in 2015. And we need your help.

Did You Know?

The Thomas Memorial Library is about more than just checking out books! In the past two years, the Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Thomas Memorial Library have sponsored:

  • Rachel Davis's ever-popular children's story hours
  • Ongoing adult and children's programming
  • Rotating art shows of local artists
  • Read-to-a-Dog programs
  • The Winter and Summer Reading Programs
  • State park and museum passes for library users
