About the Friends


friends_logoThe Friends of the Englewood Library is nonprofit organization comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting and enriching the Englewood Public Library. Your membership dollars help purchase numerous materials and fund programs in addition to what is provided through the library’s annual budget.

 The following are elected directors and officers for 2017-2018: Ella Urdang, president; Birgitha Tray, vice president for book sale; Louise Schwartz, treasurer; Adolfo Borromeo, secretary; Arnold Brown, trustees liaison, and Irmari Nacht, publicity.

Other elected directors are Bobbie Bouton-Goldberg, Serena Carson, Deiadre Helm, and Lisa Levien. Former directors who are still actively involved with the Friends contributing  their expertise are Cynthia Sumner, Ann Sparanese and James Cohen.  The nominating committee is composed of Irmari Nacht, Bobbie Bouton-Goldberg, and Deiadre Helm.

At the annual meeting last January, attendees signed up with various committees such as membership, advocacy, book sale, Tiny Free Library, educational trips, friends/fund raising, and author visits.

Book Sale & Volunteer Opportunities

Our spring book sale grossed $10,600, according to Birgitha Tray, vice president for book sale.  We thank all those who donated books, CDs, DVDs, and even their  own collection;  we thank the volunteers who sorted the items before the sale and assisted the buyers during the 3-day sale.

We are always pleased to welcome new volunteers.  If you wish to help with the next book sale, please call Ella Urdang, president, at 201-227-7464.  If you have a large collection of books to donate or unable to transport them yourself, please contact Stu Tray at 201-768-1272 who will arrange to have them picked up.
