About the Friends of the South Windsor Public Library
The mission of Friends of SWPL is to support library activities, publicize library events and issues, and develops a supportive, informed group of library advocates and users. Here are some of the ways the Friends achieves its goals:
Suppling funding for programs, museum passes, equipment, cultural trips, and the development of new collections and services.
Contributing hospitality and volunteer support for a variety of library events.
Distributing welcome kits for South Windsor newborns through the Books for Babies program.
Purchasing a dictionary for every third grade student in South Windsor.
Dispensing scholarships for graduating South Windsor students.
Providing transportation of Kindergarten classes for library tours.
The Friends of SWPL raise funds primarily through book sales, trips, and membership dues. The group also receives funds from foundations, memorial gifts, and grants. Please consider making a donation to the Friends if you are able!
