The Friends of Schlow Library is the behind-the-scenes group that helps us provide the quality service you've come to know and expect here at Schlow. Over 400 Friends members are led by a nine member board of directors who make decisions about how Friends money will be spent to support the library. They also work on special projects and programs to promote the library and make it a welcoming and active place. Membership in the Friends is open to any interested person or organization.
Thanks to you, the Friends of Schlow Centre Region Library received the most individual gifts during the massively successful Centre Gives event (over $415,000 in individual donations). As Grand Prize winners, the Friends will receive an additional $2,500 on top of the total raised. The final amount raised is currently being calculated, but we'll list it once we know. Thank you!!!
- On January 22nd we unveiled a new sculpture by artist Mark Pilato, donated by Blake and Linda Gall. Modern Day Thinker stands on the landing of the stairwell to the second floor, contemplating the compass attached to the weather vane atop the Library's landmark cupola. Stop and look up when you are on your way up the stairs.more info
