Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Glen Cove Library was established in 1970 by a caring and dedicated group of people. They are the liaison between the Library and the community, serving the pre-schooler to the retiree. The Friends strive to enrich the resources of the Library, as well as to express the public voice about its operation.
Some of their past accomplishments have been sponsoring lectures by distinguished guests, art and photo exhibitions, the purchase of a piano and fish aquarium for the children's room, book and author luncheons, special celebrations, such as the 100th anniversary Open House, cosponsorship of programs, and most recently, the design and purchase of a new banner displayed outside the Library.
Besides collecting membership dues, the Friends raise funds by selling tote bags, mugs, notepaper with reproductions of historic photographs of Glen Cove, and copies of At Andersonville, a book written by Josiah C. Brownell, a resident of Glen Cove who was a prisoner at the Civil War prison, Andersonville.
