    Spotlight: Friends of the Yardley-Makefield Library

    The Friends of the Yardley-Makefield Branch Library is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for the services and resources of the library.

    They are a devoted group of residents who believe that an excellent library is an essential community asset that reinforces lifelong learning and provides access to information for all.  

    Funding for the mission comes from a variety of sources, membership, donation, corporate matching programs, estate gifts and the popular Book Sale.  The Book Sale is their most anticipated and well-known event, and the primary source of funding.

    The sale will be October this year, and features a wonderful selection of books, audio books, puzzles, and specialty items. Check the website for information or sign up to receive notifications.

    With the money raised, The Friends fund special programs at the library on a variety of subjects including, local interest, culture, music and more. Programs run select Saturdays at 2:00pm. Dates and topics are listed on the website.

    The organization also supports Children’s Programs, The Summer Reading Program, Special Events, and contribute to various renovations all of which improve the library experience.

    If you would like to get involved, there are many options. Preparing for the book sale is ongoing throughout the year, and involves organizing books, and other sale items.

    Help is also needed to set-up, work at the sale, and clean-up. Scheduling is flexible – and all help is appreciated.
