The Friends of Andover Public Library would love to have you join! Officially incorporated in 1987, the Friends provide continuous help, fund raising support, and program planning to benefit the Andover community, PV Schools, and surounding area. You an have great fun and help your community of readers at the same time.
Meetings of the Friends are every second Wednesday at 4:00 pm in the Andover Public Library. Some members of the Friends attend regularly to actively plan programs and participate in events. Other members help during favorite programs or contribute baking or other expertise when requested to help. The Library treasures all of our Friends at every level of participation.
It's easy to become a Friend: annual dues for Individual membership is $3.00 and Family dues is $5.00. A sponsor or business fee is $25.00. Life membership (no more bills for dues!) is $100. All other donations are gratefully accepted!
You can choose one, all, or no programs but we always appreciate your participation and the occasional helping hand. Our programs include the Book Sale, Quilt Show, Christmas Open House, and much more.
Want to join the Friends? You can download a Registration Form from this web page or just pick one up from our Circulaton Desk. To download, look to the right side of the page in the Information area, and click on Electronic Media. You will see the form to download and print. Mail it in or drop it off at the desk. You will have joined a large group of "movers and shakers" supporting Andover Public Library.
Venie Hinson and Andover Public Library Friends, along with Chris Angerman of the Barn Quilt Trail in Ashtabula County, provided artistic creativity for the Andover Public Library Barn Quilt. On the east wall of the Library facing the Learning Garden, the Barn Quilt is based on the Ohio Rose Pattern, altered and developed by Venie Hinson, Dawn Marr, Jennifer Martin, Sandy John, Nancy Logan, Barbara de Villiers, Joan Steidl, Joan Chapman, and Mike Dzera with other Library Friends.
Come to the Meeting Room Monday February 26 from 1-4pm for a cookie and to meet Nancy Logan as new Director. Say goodbye to retiring Director Susan Hill, have some punch, and fill out a suggestion page. We want to hear from our users (and passers-by) about what you would like to see us offer in 2018. We will continue strong programming for all ages, but also want to know other things you see nearby libraries doing that we have not done yet.
We look forward to seeing you this Monday afternoon at Andover Public Library!!!
