Friends of the London Public Library
Welcome to Friends of the Library
On behalf of the Friends Executive, we hope all of you are well and enjoying the Fall. We are pleased to report many of our programs and services are now returning.
The Friends Giant Fall Book Sale was held in October.
A special thanks to Don Menard and the many volunteers who worked beyond the call of duty to make the sale a success! Before expenses, $45,000 was raised for the Library’s value-added programs and services.
The Annual General Meeting will be held in person on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 6 pm in the Stevenson & Hunt Room, Central Library. This will be followed by the popular Jazz for the People program, sponsored in part by the Friends.
The A Book for Every Child program, which helps to ensure that EVERY CHILD in our community has a book to call their own, is in the 31st year of operation. The campaign started November 1 and will run until December 17 2022. Find out how you can participate.
A special thanks to William and Judith Reid for their donation from their estate. Many of you may remember them as owners of Byron Swayze Travel.
My sincere thanks to the Friends Executive for their commitment and dedication, to the public library staff fortheir support, to our many volunteers, and to you, our members, for your continuing support.
