About Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Scarsdale Library (FOSL) plays a vital role in ensuring that our local library is a dynamic and multifaceted cultural and intellectual center for all. The Friends was founded in 1946 by residents in order to work with the library board and staff in helping the library reach its “maximum usefulness” in Scarsdale, and to this day, the members of FOSL support, advocate, and fundraise to do exactly this. Most recently, the Friends was critical in the library’s successful fundraising efforts to renovate and reimagine the SPL, transforming the building into a new state of the art facility.
