Today the WPLF Central Library Renovation Campaign received a lead gift of $50,000 from the Friends of the Whittier Public Library! In prior years the Friends have donated the revenue received at the Friends Bookstore to the Whittier Public Library for programs like the Summer Reading Club. This year the Friends board voted to join the WPLF in their endeavor to give Whittier the library it truly deserves.
Mayor Joe Vinatieri, WPLF President Norm Kirschenbaum, Renovation Campaign Chair Sue Settlage, and Library Director Paymaneh Maghsoudi congratulated Friends President Selma Minerd, Bookstore Manager John Marziliano, and the Friends Bookstore volunteers.
The Friends Bookstore, located on the corner of Bailey and Comstock in Uptown Whittier, offers pre-owned books of all genres, CDs, DVDs, and magazines. It is staffed by friendly volunteers diligently intent on helping customers find one-of-a kind treasures. The Bookstore is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 10:30 – 2:30.
