Friends of Peninsula Community Library

The Friends of Peninsula Community Library supports PCL!

ABOUT US  

The Friends of Peninsula Community Library is a 501(c)3 organization whose sole purpose is to provide support to the Library.  We do this by providing volunteers who assist the director and staff when needed and by conducting fundraisers to expand and enhance the materials, programs and services available to the community.

Officers are President Nancy Davy, Vice President Mary Kennedy, Secretary Nancy Tucker, Treasurer Tricia Davies.  Trustees are Penny Campo-Pierce, Madelyn Ryan and Michele Westcott.  

MEMBERSHIP 

Membership is open to any interested parties.  Currently, dues are only $10 with the year beginning January 1. You may download the application on this page to mail to the library or pick one up at the circulation desk.  

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of odd numbered months at 1 p.m. in the Library Community Room. For 2020, our meeting dates are January 15, March 18, May 20, July 15, September 16 and November 18.  Anyone is welcome to attend and participate in discussions. 

ACTIVITIES

Besides the opportunity to meet other like-minded people (i.e. book lovers) at meetings, we hold several fundraisers each year.  We anticipate raising funds in 2020 through our annual membership drive, by manning an aid station at the Bayshore Marathon, by offering the purchase of bricks for the Children's Garden, and also from money raised at the annual Book Sale.  We will be bringing back the popular Local Artists fair as well.  

Through our fundraising, we were able to donate $35,000 to the recent building fund.  We have annually provided for print material such as the subscription to the Record Eagle, assisted in covering expenses for Summer Reading Club, sponsored speakers and musicians and provided equipment for the Library.
