You may not realize the Finkelstein Memorial Library has a Friends group but you've probably seen the many things that our Friends group has accomplished!

Did you know that library patrons can take advantage of free museum passes admitting them to a host of wonderful museums in New York City and throughout the Hudson Valley thanks to the sponsorship of the Friends? Did you know the Friends sponsors free cultural arts programs held at the library?

Did you know that library patrons can take advantage of many exciting free programs thanks to the sponsorship of the Friends?

Our friends group raises funds for many of the activities and amenities we’re able to offer our patrons, and the Library wouldn’t be the same without them so please take the opportunity to show your appreciation for everything they do to support the Library—and through it, our community!

Who are the Friends and what do they do?

  • The Friends of the Finkelstein Memorial Library are people just like you who enjoy the library and support its programs and services in a variety of ways, much like parents support schools through PTA's.
  • The Friends raise money exclusively for library programs, materials, special equipment and services, and to promote the library in the community.
  • The organization is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and maintains a close relationship with the library.
  • The Friends generate financial support through fundraising events and membership dues.

The Friends membership year runs from July 1 to June 30. We urge you to become a member or renew your membership today. Your membership dues of only $15 per family enable us to offer many excellent educational and cultural presentations, help fund free passes to a host of museums, contribute toward the popular summer music program...and much more.
