The Riverton Library is proud to be involved in two very exciting local events this June:
We will be holding our 10 Cent Book Sale on Sunday, June 2nd from 1-3, which runs concurrently with the Paint the Porch Pink fundraiser. All proceeds from our book sale that day will be added to the PPP profits and donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The 3rd Annual Historic Riverton Criterium is being held just outside our door on Sunday, June 9th. Last year, we were the lucky recipients of a $3000 donation from the race proceeds. This year, profits are going to the Riverton Fire Company. Check out our display of cool Fire Company memorabilia or come by on race day to get rested, refreshed, and to pick up a book or two! We will also have a special Children’s program at 3:00 p.m. to keep the little ones occupied. Check back for more details as we get closer to race day.
Tillicum Volumes Wanted
The Library’s reference collection includes the Palmyra High School yearbook, The Tillicum, for the years 1930 through 2011. We are missing 14 issues, and would appreciate donations to fill in the gaps. The Tillicums we need are 1942, 1943, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1959, 1964, 1981, 1982, 1983, , 1984, 1987, 1997, and 2003. Yearbooks prior to 1930 would also be welcome.

The Museum Pass Program is here! Riverton Branch now owns multi-person passes for The Academy of Natural Sciences and Morris Arboretum. Check out the BCLS link below to see how this fantastic, free program works. Now you don’t have to drive to Westhampton for free stuff!
Riverton Free Library receives large donation!
In June of 2012, we received a check for $3000, donated by the Historic Riverton Criterium. Organized by local residents Carlos and Adrienne Rogers, this race has brought Riverton into the spotlight and is committed to bringing revenue to local non-profit organizations. We are honored and grateful that the Riverton Free Library was chosen as the 2012 recipient. This year, profits from the race will go the the Riverton Fire Company.
Our thanks to Bernard Markovitz, and his wife Jean,
for allowing the use of his pen and ink drawing of the library in this online web site as well as in other library publications.
