The Friends of the Levittown Public Library is a community group dedicated to improving the library experience through educational and cultural activities. We need the active and creative support of the community to continue to fulfill these goals. The "Friends" meets the third Thursday in the months of September, October, November, March, April, May and June at 10 a.m. in the community room of the library and is open to all adults.
Some previous activities have included support for the Young Adults reading program by awarding medals and/or gift certificates, framing of the "Levittown Quilt" on display in the lobby of the library and assisting in the celebration of Library Recognition Day.
Popular past meetings on "Quilting," the Library of Congress "Talking Books Program" and "Resources at the Levittown Library" can be repeated.
We envision future meetings to include speakers and demonstrations that would appeal to the community and supplement the goals of the library. Your input and help planning activities of interest is urgently needed. The "Friends" are honored to have received a Citation from Hempstead Town Supervisor, Kate Murray. The Friends of the Levittown Public Library is fully supported by the board of the Library Trustees and I dedicated staff.
The library serves all the people in our community. If you would like to contribute to its goals please join and attend meetings (dates listed in the "Levittown Calendar" that is mailed to your home) or call Shirley R. Briskie at 731-1893 for further information.
