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.
All proceeds benefit the Bosler Memorial Library and its programs, services, and operating expenses
Thank you for your support!

Wreaths Across America
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, Teach – Future Generations About the Cost of Freedom. This mission is carried out in part by placing wreaths on veterans’ graves & having simultaneous ceremonies at locations all over the USA. WAA ceremonies are held at over 500 locations in the USA and 24 offshore sites.
This year Wreaths Across America day is December 17, 2016. 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.
Each wreath sponsorship is $15. Of that, Friends of the Bosler Memorial Library receives $5. Last year we raised $320. We hope to at least double that amount this year. To accomplish this goal, we will have the Wreath Sponsorship Form available in the Bookery and in the Library beginning October 1. We plan to have a manned table at the Library during October and November Forms will be available on the Friends website www.boslerfriends.org.
Please contact Linkey Green at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 486-3693 for more information, if you wish to volunteer to help man the table, or if you would like to lay wreaths on veterans’ graves on December 17.
