The Friends of the Adamstown Area Library group is not for the faint-hearted — busy and working industriously all year through.  We’ve basked enough in the after-glow of our book sale success.  As of last night, we launched the kick-off for our annual Bucks for Books dinner/auction lead by a rousing cheer from our (long ago) retired cheer leader Carole Evans.  We’re set and ready to go.  Waiting for your offers of item donations, cash sponsorship, ad placements and all kinds of help offers.  What can you offer us?


Contact me, any board member, or leave your message with a staff member at the library.  You can also reach us through the Contacts link above and find detailed information about the Event and donations through the Events link.


Waiting to hear from you,

Margaret Harting, President

Libraries are free….except they really aren’t.  Please help us continue to fund the library with all it’s many services to the community.






The Friends’ donations of $100,000 for the capital campaign and $25,000 for the Tranquility Garden for the new library are in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
