Friends of the Dudley-Tucker Library





We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who work to help where we can in the Dudley Tucker Library. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, with the primary purpose being to raise a little extra financial support for the library’s needs. At the same time, we work to support and coordinate various library activities while enhancing library interest in our community.

Among our more visible accomplishments are the annual summer book sale, the annual holiday raffle, and supporting the Summer Reading Program. Other activities include the purchase of new books (especially "birth books!"), audios, various computer equipment and software.


If you would care to join us, we usually meet at 6:00 p.m. at the library on the first Tuesday of each month. Feel free to stop by and see what we’re all about, or check with the Librarian on how to obtain a membership application. Don’t have much time right now, or the meeting night just doesn’t fit in your schedule, but you still want to support the Library? Feel free to leave a tax-deductible donation with the Librarian, or let us know how else we could ask you for help.

The Friends of the Dudley-Tucker Library is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. All Donations are Tax Deductible.

Raymond Offers Free Library Alerts

Thanks to the Friends of the Library initial investment, the Dudley-Tucker Library is excited to offer its patrons free "Wowbrary" email alerts that showcase the library's newest items each week. The alerts feature the latest bestsellers, movies, audio books, children's titles, cookbooks, mysteries, travel guides, health books, science fiction and more purchased by the library, as well as programs on offer.

This is a great new way to enjoy and use your public library more. People are truly amazed when they see in one place just how many great new titles we purchase each week, which they can reserve and borrow at no cost. And we cover all age groups and many diverse interests.

The new Wowbrary alerts are extremely convenient and quickly show what's new, whether checked out or not, for the Dudley-Tucker Library, all from the convenience of one's home, work, or school computer.
The alerts help those interested in just specific topics, too. It only takes a mouse click to see the newest arrivals appropriate for your child or teen. There's a separate section on parenting. Teachers can quickly spot new resources for their classes.

Wowbrary alerts are free and do not require a library card. Go to to sign up or learn more.

New Hampshire’s One-Room Rural Schools:

The Romance and the Reality


Hundreds of one-room schools dotted the landscape of New Hampshire a century ago and were the backbone of primary education for generations of children. Revered in literature and lore, they actually were beset with problems, some of which are little changed today. The greatest issue was financing the local school and the vast differences between taxing districts in ability to support education. Other concerns included teacher preparation and quality, curriculum, discipline, student achievement and community involvement in the educational process. Steve Taylor explores the lasting legacies of the one-room school and how they echo today.

This program is made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.

Free and Open to the Public!
