FRIENDS PROJECTS In the spring and summer of 2019, the Friends Beautification Committee put a great deal of time and effort into reorganizing and replanting the gardens around our side entrance and surrounding our gazebo. They also set up and maintained four large pots with seasonal plantings from spring through the holidays.
FRIENDS PROGRAMS - This program has been temporarily suspended in order to help prevent the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19). We'll let you know when the suspension is lifted. The Friends, in conjunction with the the Hawley Library, have established a Fabric Arts Group. The group will meet every Thursday from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM in the Hawley Library Community Room once in-person gatherings are permitted - date TBD. All are welcome to participate - bring your projects and work alongside others, teach, or learn. No experience necessary! Light refreshments will be served.
FRIENDS FUNDRAISING Since 2019, the Friends have helped the Hawley Library raise funds for property beautification, solicited donations for our Basket Raffle, and organized our very first Winterfest Sunday Bake Sale.
