Some of our Special Friends
Meet Ruth and Peter Hirschel. They've lived in Haworth for 43 years and have been members of the Friends from the beginning. Ruth and Peter are frequent library users - they love the great selection of books and really enjoy the special programs. They're often here with grandchildren for storytime programs, and see the library as a social hub for all generations. We couldn't be happier - Ruth and Peter enjoying the library, and Friends, too!
