Friends of the Library

Friends are a necessary part of life for everyone. Friends are also a necessary part of the Sewickley Township Public Library!

The Friends of the Library play an important role in the success of our Library:

Our Friends raise funds for projects and acquisitions above and beyond the general Library budget. Some of their fundraising activities have included:

Election Day Soup, Bake & Book Sale
Vera Bradley Purse Bingo

Each year the Friends do more and more for the Library, whether through hands-on help or in-kind support. One of their biggest contributions has been sponsoring our Fantastic Final Summer Reading Program Pizza Party each year, which has included pizza, drinks & cookies, a book for each child, and a magician show for over 80 children!

Public Relations
Each Friend is a walking advertisement for the Library, helping to spread the word about our programs and activities, and reinforcing our importance to the community.

How Can I Become a Friend?
The Friends meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Library. You are welcome to attend one of these meetings to decide if you would like to devote your time and talents to the great cause! Bring a Friend with you!

How Much of My Time Will Be Involved?
That is entirely up to you. We know that everybody’s lives are busy, particularly if you have young children to care for. But even just an hour or two a month will go a long way toward helping your Library grow and offer more programs and services to the Sewickley Township community!

Want to Know More?
If you would like more information, stop by the Library, call (724) 446-9940, visit our website or email us. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about how YOU can become a major asset in the success of your Library!
