At their annual meeting Sept. 27, the Friends of Prendergast Library, under the direction of President Renate Bob, announced a donation of $500 to the James Prendergast Library. Pictured are Renate Bob, president of Friends of Prendergast Library, presenting a check to library board member Joyce Mallare. The Friends executive committee suggested that the funds be used for a salt spreader for the coming winter months in order to assure the safety of staff and patrons. The Friends of Prendergast Library engages in periodic fundraisers to assist in its mission of supporting the library. At the annual meeting several possible fundraising ideas were presented by the membership for further study. The Friends group is currently engaged in selling Bon Ton Community Day Event booklets which can be purchased at the library's front desk for a donation of $5 to the Friends. The Community Day Event will take place at the Bon Ton store on Nov. 9-10. Anyone interested in joining the Friends can obtain an application at the library or on the Friends section of the library's website.
