If you and your family enjoy the adult programs, children and teen activities, and musical events at the Beachwood Branch, thank the Friends of the Beachwood Library.
Since the doors opened in 1982, the library has benefited from the support of this all-volunteer group, whose mission is to raise money for activities and services not covered by public funding. In addition to covering the costs of programming, the Friends maintain the Holocaust Collection, thoughtfully selected popular materials on the history and personal narratives of the Holocaust; have purchased artwork for the branch; and each year offer a scholarship essay contest open to high school seniors attending area schools who are residents of Beachwood.
There are various ways you can show the Friends your support. Joining the Friends is easy.
Membership levels begin at $15 per individual ($10 for senior adult, $25 per family). Your tax deductible membership entitles you to priority notification of special events and admission to Members Only “Preview Nights” at the Friends Used Book Sales. Held twice a year in April and November — the next sale is April 7 through April 9 — Book Sales are the Friends’ biggest fundraisers.
A donation of your time is as valuable to the Friends as your monetary contribution.
Volunteers are essential to the success of the organization, and people are needed year round to help with the processing and set-up of the Book Sales.
Volunteers are also needed to host at special events and represent the Friends in the community.
For membership and volunteer information, please email FriendsofBeachwoodLibrary@gmail.com.
