Without the Friends, BAPL’s calendar of exciting and enriching events, story times, and educational and cultural series wouldn’t be possible! Friends of the Library provides the funding for the majority of BAPL’s programs.
Friends sponsor science, nature, engineering and other educational programs for children. Each year they contribute funds for incentive materials used in summer reading and activity programs. Friends help underwrite author visits, cultural programs, writing workshops, and health and fitness classes for adults.
In addition to the great satisfaction that comes with helping to strengthen the Library and support its programming, members of the Friends enjoy:
- a 10% discount on all purchases made at BAPL book sales, and
- a pass, available at the front desk, for free admission for up to a family of four at the Allentown Art Museum.
Simply show your Friends of the Library membership card!
