The Friends of the HTFL have reached a HUGE milestone! As of last night, the Friends have officially donated over $100,000 to the Haverford Township Free Library since our inception. The Friends began in March of 2003 and it’s taken less than eight years to cross this mark.
The Friends would like to thank everyone out there who’s come out and supported us, donated money or volunteered with us over the past 7+ years. We wouldn’t have been able to gift all this money to the library if it wasn’t for your support and membership! So we’re sending out pats on the back in your honor 🙂
Although $100,000 is a huge milestone, especially for our humble group, we’re not stopping there! The Friends board has been working hard on developing a whole range of upcoming events and programs which we hope you will enjoy. The library’s needs sure aren’t decreasing so the Friends are responding with even more fund raising events. Here’s a brief list of where you can see your Friends:
- Spring Bulb Sale: Place your order online or stop by the library for an order form through April 29th (Feel free to pass the link on to friends and family!)
- Art of the Garden Opening Reception: Friday, April 8th from 5pm to 8pm in the library
- Art of the Garden Exhibit: Runs from April 8th through June 21st during library hours
- Beach Bag Book Sale: May – Specifics to follow soon. Flyers will be posted in the library.
- Second Annual Garden Tour: Saturday, June 18th – More information to follow soon.
Thanks again to everyone who’s helped from the past through the present and we hope to gain even more Friends in the future!
