The vision of the Friends organization is to "Build a Better Library" bringing the community together, inspiring personal growth, and transforming lives through knowledge and literacy.


The mission of the Friends is to support the Bosler Memorial Library through fundraising, promoting public awareness and volunteerism.


The Friends of the Bosler Library, established in 1957, work to promote advocation of the library and its resources and to provide library funding.


We are a separate entity from the Library and have our own by-laws and financial reporting and auditing.  Your membership in the Friends organization is not the same as your financial donations to the Library's annual giving campaign.

Remember, Honor, Teach.


Once again, the Friends of the Bosler Memorial Library will participate in the Wreaths Across America (WAA) project. This project not only raises money for the Library but also honors veterans.


The Mission of Wreaths Across America is:

Remember – The Fallen Honor – Those Who Serve

This year Wreaths Across America day is December 16, 2017.Our location is Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in Annville, PA. All are invited to attend this very moving ceremony and help place wreaths if you wish.

We will have the Wreath Sponsorship Form available in the Bookery and in the Library beginning Oct. 1, 2017.Forms will be available on the Friends website Forms must be returned to Linkey Green by November 20, 2017.
