The Friends of the Greenburgh Library will be holding  their annual book sale today and tomorrow at the library.  A number of people who attended the event yesterday  advised told me that there are fantastic books available for purchase at very low prices.

I hope to see you at the library this afternoon. The following was posted on the Friends website and highlights some of the great things the Friends do for our community.



 Friends of the Greenburgh Library

End of Year Report 2012-2013 June 1, 2012 – May 31, 2013



This past year has been a busy one for the Friends!



  • Membership continues to rise – we now have more than 580 paid members (many of them Lifetime members!).



  • Book Store income continues to increase – we are averaging $850 - $900 per month. Total Book Store income was $27,330, expenses $8,900



  • Book Sale income was a record $16,243 and expenses were lower than previous sales at $9,170



  • The Friends have disbursed nearly $18,000 to the Library. These funds were used for a wide variety of programming: Friends sponsored a total of 290 programs, with total attendance of 4,934. My favorite is Musical Munchkins – Friends sponsored 12 sessions, attended by 585 children!!



  • This spring, the Friends created a new budget line for Library Staff Professional Development. To date, we have funded nearly $1,000 for staff members to attend and participate in continuing educational programming related to their positions at GPL.



  • In April, the Friends conducted a Library Week survey. Results were most interesting: 650 surveys were taken; 57% responding were from Greenburgh; nearly 175 come once a week and 100 twice a week. Reasons for coming to the Library range from use of our resources to just finding a quiet place to read or work.

Thank YOU for your support this year! None of this would have happened without you.
