Friends History

The Friends began on October 2, 1974. This group of volunteers were intent on providing South Park Township residents with a public library for their use.  When the Friends were formed, their main purposes were:

        - To stimulate awareness and use of library.
        - To increase both public and private financial support.
        - To coordinate efforts of all groups and individuals interested in the library.
        - To promote the greatest use possible of the library by citizens of all ages.
        - To promote and sponsor volunteer services for the library.
        - To sponsor and promote cultural and educational programs for South Park Township residents.

    With the help of thirteen presidents, $219,700 over the past 41 years, the Friends are still a very active contributor to the South Park Township Library, as well as the community.

    The Friends begin our 42nd year on October 2, 2016.   VOLUNTEER IN SOME WAY TODAY!

    The Friends wish to thank all those who supported them both financially and physically throughout the past 41 years.  Through everyone's efforts, much has been accomplished.  They hope you will continue to join and support them in the future.
