A Gift of Friend-Ship


As you make your holiday purchases this year, consider a gift that benefits not only the recipient, but your community as well. A gift membership to the Friends of the East Providence Public Library costs only $5 and lasts from October 1 to September 30. It is always the right size and will never be out of stock. As a member of the Friends, the gift recipient will be able to attend the next Preview Book Sale of the Friends, scheduled for March 31, 2022. The Preview Sale is the best time to purchase the best books at the start of the four-day book sale.

In addition, your gift membership will help to support the library and its staff. Friends of the Library memberships assist in funding programs and activities to enrich people of all ages in our community. In recent years, the Friends have provided pumpkins and prizes for the Pumpkin Stroll and Children’s Costume Contest, prizes for the Teen Reading Program and Summer Reading Program, as well as funding for the Babysitting Program. The Friends have funded children’s tables and chairs, a storage shed and the sign at the Fuller Creative Learning Center. The Funds paid for the development of the library website and continue to fund annual museum passes, concert series entertainment, speakers and programs throughout the year and the Farmers’ Market for the last eight years.

To obtain a gift membership, send a $5 check per individual or $10 per couple, made payable to Friends of East Providence Public Library, to Membership Chair, Friends of East Providence Public Library, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, RI 02914. Membership packages can also be obtained at the circulation desk at Weaver or Riverside Library and at Fuller Creative Learning Center. The membership package includes an individual membership card, reply envelope, brochure about the Friends of the Library and a special gift.
