We will be closed on Monday, July 4th in for Independence Day. We will reopen at 10 AM on Tuesday, July 5th.
Thanks to your support, our proposition on the Avon Central School Budget Vote PASSED! Thank You!
Next year the Avon Free Library will lose $11,100 in funding from an expiring PILOT agreement with the Town and Village of Avon. We are requesting a funding increase in that exact amount. This is not a library budget increase. Please vote in the Avon Central School Budget vote this Tuesday, May 17th from Noon to 9 PM in the Middle School Auditorium.
The Avon Free Library is sad to share news of the recent passing of former library clerk and library lover, Pamela Bergner Leonard. Pamela will be remembered for her love of all things British, cuisine, her pets, and her sons and grandsons. Her knowledge of British literature (especially mysteries), television, and movies was a treasure to our patrons and coworkers. Upon her retirement from the library, she immediately joined The Friends of the Avon Free Library as a board member, continuing to support the institution she so valued. There are currently no plans for a public remembrance. However, as per Pamela’s wishes, the family requests memorials be made to the Avon Free Library by sending donations directly to the library or on the donation link on our website: https://avonfreelibrary.org/donate/
