Serving and Supporting Newington's Public Library Since 1961.
October 15 - October 21
The Friends of the Lucy Robbins Welles Library raise money that enables our library to move from good to great -- providing the resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, support for summer and winter reading programs, and special events throughout the year;
The work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that our library is the cornerstone of the community providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present;
The Friends understand the critical importance of well funded libraries and advocate to ensure that our library gets the resources it needs to provide a wide variety of services to all ages including access to print and electronic materials, along with expert assistance in research, readers’ advisory, and children’s services;
During this week, we celebrate all we do to make our library and community so much better and invite the community to celebrate as well.
