Friends of the Meriden Public Library Win State Award

Friends of the Library honored for their support.

The Friends of the Meriden Public Library have supported library services in Meriden for 30 years. The Friends operate a book store in the library for 33 hours a week, usually all year round. For the last year, the support by the Meriden Friends has been extraordinary. After years of planning and lobbying for funds, a renovation of the library was coming to fruition. The renovation included several areas of the library. However the funds from the city and state were insufficient to replace the old Reference desk area which was shabby and in need of repair. The Friends came through with a check for $27,800 for a custom made Reference desk.
