Eastchester Public Library

Connecting People, Ideas & Community

Friends of the Eastchester Public Library


The Friends are a non-profit membership organization dedicated to supporting the activities and mission of the Eastchester Public Library. The Friends raise funds to support services and programs outside the scope of the library's annual operating budget. Most importantly of all, Friends members are advocates of the library who know the importance of the role of the library in their community.

The Friends are looking for volunteers and could use your help with Administration, Advocacy, Fundraising, and any Special Skills & Talents you may have to offer.

Don’t forget to visit the Friends Book Sale Room, located on the lower level of the library. The Book Sale Room is open on Tuesdays and Fridays and on the first and second Saturday of the month from noon-3:00 pm
