The Friends of the Wantagh Public Library is a non-profit, charitable organization made up of volunteers who offer their time and energy to benefit the library. Thanks to the generous support of the Friends, since 2003 the group has given over $62,000 to the library. The money was raised though dues, book sale profits and donations. The library for example, received a much needed gift from the Friends, the entertainment equipment in the community room, that patrons still use to enjoy movies and conduct presentations. The Friends also presented cooking programs, and speakers who taught us about antiques (including free evaluations of some of our treasures). Friends provided the occasional entertainment, such as a Beatles’ tribute band, complete with appropriately costumed musicians. The Library now needs new Friends to step forward to support the library’s mission. The Friends of the Library group is looking for new members with fresh ideas to join this historic and much needed organization. Help your library and have fun doing it!
