Kevin Riordan of the Inquirer took the time to write a story about the Vineland Library, which appeared in the August 18 issue of the paper. Our thanks to him for clearly outlining the issues!
We're delighted to announce that the Friends of Vineland Public Library have been given permission to hold its ongoing book sale once again in the small room next to the library circulation desk. Our thanks to board vice president Melanie Lovisone and the rest of the board, who acknowledged that the sale was beneficial. The only difference now is that you don't pay at the desk; there's an "honor system" box in which you leave payments!
Budget reductions at the library have left the shelves bare of new material. Thanks to Vineland resident Norene Ritter, president of the Friends of Vineland Public Library, the gap has been at least partially filled for younger patrons!
During a recent meeting of the Friends of Vineland Public Library, Nicole Gardner (third from left) presented a donation from Gardner Financial Planning that will allow the Friends to purchase prizes for the 2019 Children's Summer Reading Program!
The Friends of Vineland Library raise funds to support programs for children that encourage an interest in reading and the arts. In recent years, more than 19,000 children from toddlers to teens participated in 1,500 programs designed just for them.
The Friends are an integral part of the library so if you'd like to help, please let us know! Your $10 annual membership can do a lot of good for a lot of people who benefit from all the material and programs offered there.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
The Friends of Vineland Public Library is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
