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…)
The Friends of the Irondequoit Public Library will be selling used books at the Irondequoit Community Garage Sale today, November 2. The sale will take place at the East Irondequoit Middle School (155 Densmore Road) from 10 AM to 3 PM. We hope to see you there!

The Friends of the Irondequoit Public Library are delighted to present our 3rd Annual Fundraiser, “Walk to Connect 3,” on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Just 2.7 miles one-way (not quite a 5K), our walk has something for everyone!
This non-competitive Walk Fundraiser is from 9:00 AM -11:00 AM, with registered Walkers following a set route between the two Library branches. Each person registered receives:
- Commemorative T- Shirt*
- String Bag*
- Certificate of Completion
- Water Station on route
- Satisfaction of supporting our Library!
(*some date restrictions apply, see registration page for details)
From 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, you will also find Entertainment and Activities at both branches, which are free to all Library visitors during event hours and tickets will be sold for our very popular raffle (Note: Raffle drawings will be held at 12:30pm at Evans branch)
A Shuttle Bus is available throughout the event to take people between branches or back to their starting point. There is a place on the bus to stow strollers and other walk aids.
All of the day’s proceeds go to underwriting the Friends-sponsored Library programs, which are not funded anywhere in the Library’s yearly budget, and to promote awareness about the Library in our town!
To participate in this special fundraising event, please see the registration page. For more information or any questions, please call Ann Ryan, at 544-1948, or email email@example.com.
We hope you and your family and friends will join us for this great family-oriented celebration of our Library!
