Sylvia Raschke, a long time resident of Cold Spring, is representing the many volunteers that make up Cold Spring Friends of the Library, a group of people who love libraries, enjoy literature and work together to better the Library programs. Our local friends of the library volunteer thousands of hours every year to help keep the library functioning. Sylvia, and many like her, is working hard to raise money to allow our local library to obtain a much-needed larger space. From “used book sales” to Soup and Chili feeds and most recently the Cold Spring Brewery Oktoberfest, the Friends of the Library are teaming up with community groups to help raise $400,000 for a new library building or space. The library is a place where people of all ages, interests and ethnic backgrounds can have access to the information of the world.
