House of the Rising Sun

It’s hard to see in the photos below, but it’s glaringly apparent in the library that the new, energy efficient window film donated by the Friends has created some shady librarians (in a good way!). Staff and patrons complained that overwhelming glare was creating an uncomfortable – and at times unworkable – situation in the library. So, the Friends were happy to fund their request for the solar film application to keep everyone from getting sunburn during their stay at the library. Your donations helped make this upgrade possible!

Penny Drive 2016

The Friends of the Library are conducting a penny drive in honor of Abraham Lincoln until his birthday in February.  These days a few pennies do not go very far, however putting a lot of pennies together can certainly add up to enhancing our library.  Donation containers are at numerous businesses throughout the community including:
pennybox

One of the penny boxes you’ll see around town.

Welcome to the Friends of the Bridgeville Public Library!

This new site is growing and we hope you grow with us! If you have any comments or suggestions, please drop us a line and let us know. If you don’t know who we are, we are an auxiliary group that supports the programming and funding needs of the Bridgeville Public Library. Everything we do is to make the library the best it can be for everyone who utilizes its vital services.

Some of our recent contributions include:

  • Underwriting the cost of the summer science program for kids
  • Purchasing sewing machines for children’s programs
  • Purchasing environmentally friendly window film to prevent glare in the library and help with insulation
  • Purchasing sit mats for the toddler story time program
  • And much, much more.

If you’d like to join us, you’ll find our modest annual dues are less than a large pizza. Unlike a pizza, while great, your contribution will help nourish your library for an entire year, not just for one sitting. You can find our bylaws here.
