The Friends of the Longwood Public Library work in cooperation with the library to provide financial support for programs and special projects that enhance library services to the community. New York State Law prohibits the library from engaging in commerce, thus limiting the institution to available Federal or State funds and voted budget propositions. There are several programs offered at the library that are totally or partially supported by the Friends membership dues and fundraising activities.
The Friends of Longwood Public Library will be awarding a $500 scholarship to a college bound senior currently enrolled in the Longwood School District. The scholarship is in recognition of contributions made to the Longwood Public Library.
Applications are due by April 1 and are available in the True North Teen Department at the library.
