Who We Are:
The Friends of East Greenbush Community Library is an organization of people of all ages whose mission is to create broad support in the community for the East Greenbush Community Library as a major and expanding cultural resource. The Friends give a voice to the message that the library and its many services are a vital part of our community.
What We Do:
With funds raised from Friends membership dues and through our volunteer-run book sales and other special events, we help to enhance programs and services that the library can offer. The Friends also have book bags on sale for $10.00 at the Circulation Desk of the library.
In recent years, the Friends have donated money from their fundraising activities to purchase a variety of books, CDs, DVDs, computer equipment, and museum passes, as well as funding many concerts and children’s programs. The Friends continue to be a much-needed and valuable resource for the library.
