Celebrate National
Friends of Libraries Week
October 19-25, 2014

Love the library? Then join the Friends of the York County Library! This group of volunteers helps increase public awareness about the library and raise money to support such important library services as summer reading programs for all ages, author events, special collections, and new technologies. Some Friends even get involved in politics, lobbying for increasing the library's budget, building new facilities, or legislation that affects libraries. Friends groups around the nation will celebrate the ninth annual national Friends of Libraries Week, October 19-25, to help raise awareness of Friends groups, boost membership, and increase the public's involvement in libraries.

To find out more about becoming a Friend, see our Friends page or download a membership form. Memberships start at just $15, and members receive advance notice of book sales, early admittance to sales before the public, and one free book of their choice at each sale. But one of the greatest rewards of membership is the gratification of supporting the services and programs of the York County Library! Thanks to all of our great Friends!
