SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY, MAY 3 at the IRONDEQUOIT TOWN HALL
On Saturday, May 3 (10:00 AM – 3:00 PM), the Friends are having a Fun Fest on the campus of the Town Hall. It will include a Trunk Sale (garage/craft sale items to be sold from the trunk of your car), raffles, games for kids, the music of Mike Kornrich, Amazing Joe the Magician, food trucks, the Pioneer House and the Blacksmith shop will be open and it should be a great celebration of spring! Right now the Friends  are looking for garage salers, next to newers and crafters who would like to take advantage of this opportunity to sell their wares in a festive atmosphere and a lovely setting.  There is an application attached. It will be run like the Farmer’s Market– the sellers will drive up onto the grass of the access road near the gazebo next to the town hall. They can sell out of their trunk, put up a table or a tent. There is space for the first 40 people who apply. The Friends expect to have sunny skies and lots of people there. If you do not have items to sell, please pass this on to any interested friends, neighbors or family, and make plans to attend and enjoy the activities and find some unique purchases. As you know, it is through fund raising, that the Friends of the Library are able to fund the great programs for children and adults which we enjoy at the Irondequoit Public Library. See you on the 3rd of May!!!YOUR FRIENDS OF THE IRONDEQUOIT PUBLIC LIBRARY

State Budget Discussion at Town Hall Saturday

March 3rd, 2014 by Terry in Adults, Friends of the Library, The Open Book, Uncategorized · Comments Off ·

Join State Assembly Leader Joe Morelle for a State Budget Forum at Town Hall on Saturday, March 8 at 11 AM.

Governor Cuomo’s proposed budget includes a 5% cut to aid for public libraries. Last year he proposed the same cut and the legislature reversed it. Perhaps, considering all we do for the unemployed and underprivileged, they might be convinced to rescind that cut again?

Friends of the Library Letter in Iron. Post: We Need a Strong and Vibrant Library

November 6th, 2013 by John in Friends of the Library · Comments Off ·

The following letter from The Friends of the Library was published in the Irondequoit Post on November 1, 2013:

I am President of the Friends of the Irondequoit Public Library, not to be confused with the “Friends” as portrayed in the letter of October 17, 2014. Despite the claims in that letter, none of our members have hijacked anyone. In fact, speaking of misinformation, someone circulating the petition that forced a second vote claimed to be a Friend of the Library, which was a blatant untruth. The real Friends wholly support the new Library building.

A Library is so much more than a source of information, or as some people think, just books. A new building will provide the flexibility and space to realize a better future for all our citizens. To compete effectively in the new, fast changing world, we need a population of informed and technologically savvy citizens. Instead of fearing the changes that are rapidly altering the way the world is connected, the Library embraces those changes. (more…)
