October 16-22, 2011, is the fifth annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries week making it a good time to publicly thank the Friends of the Westhampton Free Library who contribute so much of their time and expertise to significantly enhance our services. Our Friends group began in 1981 and over the course of the past thirty years they have donated over $310,000 to cover the costs of adult and children’s programming and equipment.
I know that the Westhampton Free Library is a source of pride for our community. Our Friends group is a source of pride as well. I hope this week everyone will call the library to find out how they can join and support this outstanding group.
