Library Foundation Funds Library Programs for 25 Years!

PWPL Foundation Board members

Did you know? Since 1989 the Port Washington Library Foundation (PWLF) has funded cultural enrichment programs and outreach services not covered by the taxpayer-approved budget at the Port Washington Public Library (PWPL).

The PWLF funds the all-volunteer Library Advisory Councils, comprised of experts in their fields and community members, focus on art, children, music and nautical heritage. The Councils coordinate a host of free programming, gallery displays, and presentations throughout the year.

In 2014, the varied and free programming offered at the Port Washington Public Library and funded by the Library Foundation included the popular day-after Thanksgiving family concert, an adolescent mental health program, Manhasset Bay boat tours, artist Marla Lipkin’s “Pathway to the Sea” installation, and acclaimed cellist, Jay Campbell, who performed an eclectic repertoire of Debussy, Stravinsky, and Brahms.

This year, the Library Foundation will fund a host of terrific programs to interest everyone in your family, including the exciting revitalization of the Children’s Room into the Children’s Library! Stay tuned for exciting information on plans for the space. See the plans at: www.PWPL.org/anewleaf/
