Friends of the London Public Library

Welcome to Friends of the Library

Since its inception in 1993 Friends has raised more than 1.5 million dollars; funding that provides value-added enhancements to London’s Libraries programs and services. With your support, in March 2022 Friends of the Library were able to contribute $47,821.00 for the Summer READ Program and the Book Club ‘Books in a Bag’. We continue to support the Library’s initiatives to eliminate barriers and improve inclusion through access to Library programs and services for vulnerable individuals and communities.

We continue to monitor and to act on developments in regard to COVID-19. To this end and due to the dedication of the Board, we continue to meet monthly by Zoom to take care of business and to plan for the future. We are now able to hold pop-up book sales, with all protocols adhered to, offer the Book for Every Child campaign, continue receiving memberships and pick up book donations. We have also introduced a new on-line service where you can select a book on-line. The books are to be picked up and paid for at the Friends Book Store at the Central Library.

My thanks to the Friends Executive for their work and dedication during the pandemic and thank you, our members, for your continuing support.

Stay well and safe.
