 Friends of Tredyffrin Public Library

Over 45 Years of Support for Our Library

Since 1968, we’ve been loyal Friends to the library. Hundreds of Friends have worked to help the library in many ways over the years. We’re really good at raising funds, which the library uses to develop programs and purchase materials. Plus, we promote the library in our community and when necessary, we make calls, send emails and write letters to lawmakers to advocate for the library. Right now, we’re very short handed, and we need your help!
