The Friends of the New Oxford Area Library have been very busy during the past year. The Friends purpose is to support the Library either by financial means or physical means. We provide support and materials above what is budgeted by the Adams County Library System.
     In order to be able to do this we have held fundraisers this past year. In April we held a fundraiser at the Gettysburg Perkins. July saw us busy raising funds at the Hanover Sweet Frog and providing a food truck for the patrons of the ACLS 2021 book sale. We made an appearance at the Gettysburg Farmer’s Market and the New Oxford Day festival in August.
     The funds have been used to support the summer programs for our youth and to help with the purchase of new and much needed furniture at our library. Our endowment fund helps purchase books for our library.
     We are sponsoring a Meet the New Library Staff for our youth patrons on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 6:30pm. We will supply popcorn and the movie Peter Rabbit 2. Information will be posted on our library web site. Because of the ongoing Covid-19 concerns space will be limited.
     October is our Membership Drive month. By becoming a member of the Friends you help us continue to support our library. Stop in and pick up a membership flyer. We also accept donations from the community and our patrons. Without your support and generosity our work would not be possible. We look forward to seeing you.
