Friends of the Library

Supporting the Library for 35 Years!

Founded in 1986, Friends of the Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds to provide gifts (programs, workshops, giveaways, equipment, and artwork) for Glenside Library. The Friends sponsor seasonal used book sales and maintain an ongoing book sale shelf located on the first floor, offering used books, movies, audiobooks, and magazines for sale throughout the year.
