Friends of the East Greenbush Community Library logo

Who We Are:

The Friends of East Greenbush Community Library is a non-profit, volunteer organization committed to creating broad community support for the East Greenbush Community Library as a major and expanding cultural resource and vital part of the East Greenbush community.

Through a range of fundraising events (book & media sales, children’s festival, tote bag sales, Amazon Smile and special events), the Friends enhance programs and services that the library can offer. Many of these programs and projects promote literacy and learning, and all contribute to a strong community supported by a strong library.

How Can I Support The Friends?

Thank You:

During the month of April, the Friends of the East Greenbush Community Library were the beneficiaries of the Hannaford Cause Bag program. This program supports education, civic, and health and wellness community organizations by making donations to a local nonprofit cause. Anytime a shopper purchased a Hannaford Helps reusable shopping tote, the Friends received $1! . Thank you to Hannaford and to everyone who supported us through the purchase of a bag!
