"FRIEND"LY REMINDERS

 

Want to do something special for a loved one, friend, relative, neighbor, who is deceased? How about that special person who is still alive?

Over the past 47 years, the Friends have accepted memorial and "in honor of" donations for the library. Donations can be made through the Friends or directly to the library for books, equipment, etc. You may make a donation in someone's name "in memory of" or "in honor of that person." The name for whom the donation(s) are made of $100 or more to Friends or the library are placed on a Friends' plaque. The Friends currently have 4 plaques hanging in the library. 

When a person is deceased, a family member or friend should contact the Friends or library, if they are interested in giving a donation in that person's name. When a Friends' member or family member (husband, wife, son, daughter, member dies) with a Friends' family membership, a donation will be placed from the Friends of the Library to be used as the library staff sees fit, placed in that person's memory.

 

You may want to do something even more special for a deceased loved one. Several people have put in loved one's obituary
"IN LIEU OF FLOWERS, DONATIONS CAN BE MADE TO SOUTH PARK TOWNSHIP LIBRARY OR TO FRIENDS OF SOUTH PARK TOWNSHIP LIBRARY". Contact South Park Library, if you would like to do this, when you are writing an obituary at (412) 833-5585.

 

Donations can also be made for someone who is still alive. Make a donation to our library for their birthday, anniversary, or just because they are a wonderful person! Your group can also be a donor to the library or Friends. Contact the Friends by Email: friendssplibrary@yahoo.com or by calling the Library at (412) 833-5585 to leave a message for Friends to contact you or your group.

                                                                                 

 

FRIENDS' NEWS

From Friday, November 6, 2020 - Sunday, November 8, 2020, the Heart of the Community Mosaic Mural was installed to the exterior of the Library building. On Monday, December 7, 2020, the Heart of the Community Mosaic Mural was dedicated as part of the Township's Light Up Night activities. Over two years, hundreds of hands worked thousands of hours together. The mural displays many of the things we see in our community every day, most of which is in our Township. Sout Park Township Library is represented by a girl with a book. Thanks to those Friends members, who helped out in some way on this mural! A special thank you to South Park Township for all of their support with this community project! The fruits of everyone’s labor is a great addition to front of our Library building. To look back at the history of the Library's mosaic mural, please visit the Heart of the Community Mosaic Mural blog here!



On Saturday, September 7, 2019, the Linda Yee Memorial Bench was dedicated to South Park Township Library and South Park Township by Cathie Humphreys, Co-President of the Friends of South Park Township Library. The dedication ceremony was attended by many of Linda's family, friends, library staff, library retirees, and Township officials. Linda had been a former South Park Township Library Director for many years. The bench was obtained with donations from family, friends, and Friends of South Park Township Library from August 2017 - January 2018. The family had designated the "FRIENDS" to receive all donations in Linda's name and the Friends decided to have a memorial bench at the library in her name. The Linda Yee Memorial Bench is located on the left side of the library entrance.

This meeting is for all members as well as anyone, who is interested in learning about the Friends, becoming a member in their upcoming year. The next meeting will take place on November 9, 2021 at 6:45 PM. Be there 5 minutes earlier, please, the Library closes at 8:00 pm. The Friends usually hold 4 meetings per year: September, November, March, and June. Each meeting is approximately an hour long.

Our fiscal year end meeting will take place on next June 2022. Members should try to attend, if possible.

 

The Friends welcome new ideas & suggestions for programs. Do you have a special hobby, talent, and/or gift, that you'd like to share with our residents? Come to the meeting with your information on your talent, hobby, and/or gift. Perhaps it is something that can be shared with others by you teaching a class on the subject or giving a program. This information will then be given to our library's Adult Services Coordinator, Donna Neiport.

 

The 2021 Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale will take place on Thursday, October 7th; Friday, October 8th; and Saturday, October 9th.
