Friends of the Library

Who Are the Friends?

The Friends of the Scarsdale Library was formed in 1968, and in the years since has grown to encompass some 800 members. Our primary goal is to support the Library as it serves our community. We strive to focus public attention on the Library’s services, facilities, and needs. Check out our Membership page to see how you can be a part of all we do for our library.

Library Projects

In the past few years the Friends have extended the reach of the Library budget by contributing to a number of important and innovative projects, including:

  • Playaways The Friends purchased 100 of these digital audio books pre-loaded on mp3 players — a pilot program that will be greatly expanded if it proves popular.
  • Children’s Room We contributed to upgraded lighting and carpeting for the Children’s Room.
  • Master Plan The Friends helped to support the hiring of an architect to work with the Board in devising a master plan for the library’s future .
