ABOUT US

The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library is an all-volunteer organization separate from the library. The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library group was established in 1950.  Since that time the organization has been a vital force in supplementing Library funding. Donations received through the annual membership drive and proceeds generated by used book sales have enabled the Friends to support Library services in many ways. We have augmented the purchase of new technology, books, and other media, sponsored adult and children’s programs, provided funding for purchase of a variety of annual passes to local cultural institutions, contributed as a major donor to the recent building renovation and expansion, and responded to special funding requests as they continue to arise.

All Whitemarsh residents and Library patrons are welcome to join the Friends of the Library. The Friends Board of Directors holds its public meetings the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m., September through June, and convenes its Annual Meeting in March, featuring a Program every EVEN year.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library is to promote and supplement the services, programs, and facilities of the library through various fundraising and volunteer activities.
