Friends Sponsored Programs

The Friends holds two program meetings annually, in the Spring and Fall. The Friends also sponsors a number of programs usually held each year. Notice of Friends-sponsored programs appears in The Library's newsletter.


Do you have a suggestion for a Friends program?

The Friends welcomes ideas from everyone. Remember, all Friends activities and programs are open to the entire community.


Spring and Fall Program Meetings


Two times a year the Friends presents a well-known author or personality as its program speaker. The speakers normally do readings and entertain questions from the audience. Following the free program, copies of the speaker’s books are offered for sale and autographing. Past Spring Program and Fall Program speakers have included Linda Fairstein and Alex Berenson.

Puppets bring out the child in all of us. Every February The Library celebrates Puppetry Month with performances by acclaimed professional puppeteers on two Sunday afternoons. Tickets are $4 each. Age requirements for attendance vary from year to year as determined by the artists. The Puppetry Festival celebrates the legacy of the late Phyllis Noar, a former Friends president Phyllis Noar and strong advocate for children’s programming. Check The Library's Calendar for February for more information about this year's festival.





imageWhat's It Worth? Antiques and Collectibles Appraisals


Every year, The Friends sponsors its own “antiques roadshow”: a fun afternoon of appraisals, a fascinating lecture by an expert, informative handouts about antiques and collectibles, and light refreshments. Tickets are $10 and include having two items (no weapons, please) appraised by a professional appraiser. Observers without items to appraise do not need a ticket. All appraisals are verbal, nonbinding opinions of value. In recent years the appraiser has been Joseph Bodnar of Bodnar Auction Sales, along with his colleagues.
