The Friends of the Yardley-Makefield Library is a group of volunteers who donate time to raise funds for the betterment of the library.
In 2018 and 2019, the Friends donated $15,000 to the Summer Reading Program at the library.
They also sponsor the Saturday afternoon programs as well as the Thursday Chair Yoga sessions.
The Friends primary fundraisers are their book and media sales.
All of the items sold are donated by the public and then reviewed and organized by the members.
The community has shown overwhelming support for the book sales with their attendance and donations of good quality books, audio books, DVDs, CDs and puzzles.
The 2020 book sales will be in the spring and fall. Prices typically range from 50 cents to $3. There will also be some specially priced items available.
The Friends’ website, www.ymfriends.org, contains information about the organization, upcoming library programs and book sales.
Those interested in receiving updates on book sales and programs can join their e-mail list on the Friends’ website.
