In recent years, the Friends have held three major fundraising events:sale

  • Fall Book Sale, that features hardbacks, paperbacks, CD, DVDs, and books on tape
  • Greens Sale, held in December
  • Spring Sale held on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, which includes the sale of books, plants, baked goods and light refreshments.

In addition, every other year, we hold a social gathering at the Library–Winter Interlude–that includes music, refreshments, and a silent auction.
