Friends of the Library
Who Are the Friends?
The Friends of the Scarsdale Library was formed in 1946, and in the years since has grown to encompass some 800 Friends. Our primary goal is to support the Library as it serves our community. We strive to focus public attention on the Library’s services, facilities, and needs. Check out our Friends page to see how you can be a part of all we do for our library.

Library Loft, located at Supply Field on 244 Heathcote Road, is open and ready for your visit. This is the library’s temporary home for library services during its transformation of the Olmsted Road building, and we hope you find this clean, fresh space to be comfortable and welcoming. The library expects to be here for about two years, so please come by to say hello — then, pick up a museum pass; browse in the children’s room; use one of four public computers; bring a device of your own and use the wifi; or take out a popular novel! This new home might be small, but it has a collection curated by the library’s knowledgeable staff and has many features any library offers. However, some popular programs will take place at other spaces in Scarsdale — please check the calendar for more information.
It is hard to believe that we are underway! Over the coming weeks, you might notice signs of progress. Images will be added here as available. In the meantime, please know the building committee is meeting regularly to discuss each step, and the Library Board continues its deep commitment to project oversight that will include regular community updates.
Bookmarks has information about upcoming events, so check back for the latest edition for all kinds of wonderful happenings at the library.
In the past few years the Friends have extended the reach of the Library budget by contributing to a number of important and innovative projects from Children’s to Adult programming and including the popular Writer’s Center and Museum Passes.
