Celebrating Fifty Years of Service

Submitted by Marcy Lechner

The Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library capped this year with a Proclamation from the Westfield Town Council acknowledging their fifty years of service on June 14, 2022. Many of the long standing members of the Friends were in attendance to appreciate the town’s recognition. Co-President Mike Miller shared “It’s an honor to receive this Proclamation. The Friends enjoy their time and effort to provide service to the library and the Westfield community. We look forward to the next fifty years.”

While the spring season is over, the Friends are busy planning for the fall. Come join us for a Broadway Bus trip to see Funny Girl on October 19 or to see a performance of Lady MacBeth of Mtsensk (Shostakovich) by the NY Metropolitan Opera on October 12. If a service program is your interest sign up to deliver Books-on-Wheels or to our Little Free Libraries around town. Of course, the Friends welcome new members to join any one of our program and event committees.
