Friends of the Malvern Public Library
502 Main Street
Mission Statement :
The Friends of the Malvern Public Library was organized with the purpose to maintain an association of persons interested in libraries; to focus public attention on the library; to stimulate the use of the library's resources and services; to support and cooperate with the library in developing library services and facilities for the community, including projects of a special nature which cannot be otherwise funded; and to support the freedom to read as expressed in the American Library Association Bill of Rights.
The Friends pride themselves in being just what the name implies: friends. They work hard and respect the goal of seeking more attractive surroundings for the library--to search for sources to provide materials and inspiration for reading and learning. They also dream big--for the new library! The Friends are constantly seeking sources to support the goal of reducing building fund debt. Grants have played a crucial role in the search for monies, with an annual application for Endowment Grants for special projects not supported by the library's annual budget.
