Once again the Friends presented a cheque for $3,000 to the Uxbridge Public Library. The majority of the money comes from the book sales held throughout the year at the library and also includes Friends membership dues. The library accepts the generous book donations year-round from Uxbridge residents and selects the books that are most needed by the library to replace used copies, add more copies of the more popular books or to add new titles to the shelves. Last year the donated books saved the library $41,960 (retail cost). In the near future, the Friends will be donating $2,000 to the library for the purchase of a selection of BBC productions on DVD.
