Join the Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library

The Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library are conducting their annual membership drive for fiscal year 2011 which runs from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2010. The Friends is an independently incorporated organization whose purpose is to enhance library services.

During the past year, the Friends have provided funding for books for children, teens and adults, library supplies and other building necessities. They also funded a new Book Return Box to replace the older, damaged unit.

The Friends have sponsored book sales and sales of coffee, hot chocolate, tote bags and mugs. They have sponsored a pizza fest, ink-jet cartridge project and a very successful e-junk event. Because of their commitment and energy, they were able to donate a total of $21,960 in FY 2010 which was a key element in keeping the library open during what can only be described as an impossible budget year.

Membership dues are another major source of income for the Friends. Basic dues are $15 with other sponsorship levels available. Membership applications are available at the Bridgewater Public Library and on the library's website.
