Au Revoir

Mike judged many a July 4th Pet Pageant for the library!

Until we meet again.

For over 33 years, our library has been honored to have a dedicated gentleman as its librarian, as its library director, and as its branch manager — Michael Robinson.

Mike is retiring from his official and talented work for our library at the end of June.

The Riverton Free Library Association Board encourages our neighbors to stop by the library to share their stories and to show their appreciation for Mike and his positive impact on their lives.

We also welcome you to join the RFL Association at his farewell party, to be held in the library on Friday, June 23rd from 7 until 9 PM.  Please RSVP our email Contact page, by June 10th if you plan to attend.

We all thank him for his indelible contribution to our community.

We hope he continues to frequent the library, as he will be missed!



Friends of The Riverton Free Library — April 27, 2017 Meeting Notes

Artwork thanks to Christian Ancker.

The Friends of the Riverton Free Library met at the library on April 27, 2017.  This volunteer group made the following plans for the upcoming spring.

  • Karen Healey has agreed to be Membership Chair…Thank you Joyce Sico for the membership flyer and forms….now displayed in the Library.
  • The first garden-work day is scheduled for Wednesday, May 3rd, at 10am…anyone interested in helping would be certainly welcomed…it should take an hour or less depending on the amount of volunteers.  Looking to Boy/Girl Scout help for the behind-the-library clean up this summer.
  • The Friends will be purchasing two new bridge tables for library use.
  • Janice Papenberg has agreed to be the liaison person between the Friends and the Library Board (Janice is also a member of the Board).
  • We have agreed to meet 3 times a year.  The Library Board meets in January, April, and September on the second Monday of those months.  The Friends will meet one week before the Board meeting…so that would be the first Monday in January, April and September.
  • It was suggested that I become the Chair of the Friends for the 2017-18 year and Jan DeVries be Vice Chair, with Pat Brunker as Treasurer.
