ONCE MORE UNTO THE BEACH
THIRD ANNUAL PENGUIN PLUNGE
NEW DATE & TIME! Sunday, April 6, 1 pm
The Friends of the Library encourages you to support the Irvington's Recreation and Parks Department's efforts to raise money.
It, like the library, has suffered budget cutbacks recently and needs private donations to maintain the programs and services it has always provided.
Every year some of us Friends form a team to participate in the Penguin Plunge. By sponsoring our team this year you are raising money for the Rec Department while raising awareness of the Friends of the Library.
Use this link to sponsor our team (you'll find us at the bottom of the right-hand column).
You can learn more about this fund-raising event here.
Great news for book lovers!
There's a new second-hand book store in the river towns and the Friends of the Irvington Library is part of it.
The Friends has teamed up with the recently opened Curious-on-Hudson Bookshop in Dobbs Ferry to offer a choice selection of our used books year round!
All proceeds from items on the Friends' Bookshelf there will go directly to the Irvington Public Library, and you will enjoy the relaxed, comfortable shopping experience we can't offer you at our semi-annual sales.
145 Palisade Street 4th Floor
Dobbs Ferry, NY
Open Wednesday through Sunday, Noon to 6 pm
(Thursdays until 9 pm)
DID YOU KNOW...
The Friends of the Irvington Library
was established in 1964 to support and promote
Irvington Public Library and the cultural interests of the people living in and near the village of Irvington.
It has since grown to be a full-fledged not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation.
In addition to providing funds for all children's activites, teen and adult programs,
and the acquisition of CD's, DVD's, audiobooks and equipment, the Friends is a crucial advocacy group
fighting to maintain the library's current level of service during these tough fiscal times.
You can become a Friend of the Library by making your tax-deductible contribution right now.
Individual membership: $15
