Who are the Friends?
The purpose of the Friends of the Adamstown Area Library is to maintain an association of persons interested in books and libraries, to focus public attention on library services and needs, to stimulate gifts of books for the purpose of resale, to foster volunteerism, and to enrich library resources through fundraising projects.
Our dedicated Friends group has always been inspired to work diligently for our projects, knowing the impact we have on the library services offered. Between 1996 and 2015, we raised $689,912 for the library through over 50 varied and sometimes unusual projects. Our main focus remains on our annual book sale, basket bingo, and the annual Bucks for Books dinner and auction.
Our annual report shows over 75 activities that we have held or sponsored over our history as well as donations to the library other than financial aid. Of course, without your wonderful support and the caring community, this would not have happened.
