W.K. Sanford Town Library Friends welcome new members.
If you’re not sure what we’re about, the Friends is a support organization to the Colonie Town Library. There are numerous ways the Friends help, such as paying for items that are not covered in the library’s annual budget. Money is raised by selling used books or holding special fundraisers.
This year is the 40th anniversary of the library, and the Friends members are volunteering in numerous ways to support the events being held.
Your assistance is needed in many areas. Whether you can volunteer just an hour or on a regular basis, we can use you! There are many opportunities. Beginning in May when the Colonie Farmers Market opens at the Crossings on Saturday mornings, volunteers are needed to assist with used-book sales. You can also choose to assist at just one event such as selling raffle tickets, assembling food orders, etc. for an hour or two on a specific day.
It’s easy to join. Annual membership dues are modestly priced:
- $10 Individual Annual Membership
- $15 Family Annual Membership
- $8 Senior Annual Membership
- $250 Business Annual Membership
Just click HERE to pay membership dues by credit card.

The Friends of the Library have supported several fundraising events to celebrate the Library’s 40th Anniversary. The Great Gatsby Gala was a wonderful success, raising approximately $8,000. Here are some photos and the night’s program. There were many individuals and businesses that helped make this night possible. Thank you!
Save the dates for the upcoming Giffy’s BBQ and Family Festival on August 12th and a Pasta Dinner on October 14th.
