The most important thing the Friends do is provide a grant to the Saratoga Library of over $140,000 annually to support programs and purchase new materials for their collections.
WHAT WE FUND
Collections funds new and best selling books to expand our offering for adults, teens, and children.
Programs support all kinds of activities at the library, including adult literacy programs, childrens reading programs, social media workshops, financial planning programs, and Lego club
Librarian hours support the library in many ways, including providing longer opening hours
HOW WE RAISE MONEY
We raise the money to provide this support primarily in 2 ways, through the generous support of our members and sales of donated books at our Book-Go-Round:
In addition to our Book-Go-Round, which is open daily, our Retail Operations income includes money raised at our quarterly Paperback Sales, and sales at the Café Store which is located in the Saratoga Library foyer.
OTHER STUFF WE DO
GO GO BIBLIO
