1.   The only purpose of the Friends is to support the Library.

2.   The PYPL needs and deserves support.

4.   Membership is affordable.

5.   Easy, do as little or as much as you want!

6.   Be in good company.

7.   PYPL is a very worthy cause.

8.   We make a real difference.

9.   You get occasional invitations to special events.

10. We do have fun!

But WHAT do we do?

Some of us bake for various events.

Some of us sort and sell books at the Annual Friends’ Book Sale.

Some of us sponsor occasional happenings.

Some of us just send money, but that is the foundation of all we do!!

Currently we are having many of the chairs in the library recovered or refinished.  We are also working to be able to provide a large sum of money to help with the outdoor landscaping to make the lawn area more usable for programming.

Please use our membership form to join the Friends and be sure to let us know how you would like to get involved in the various friends activities.
