Friends of the Library

Special Thanks to the Friends of the Library

The Bethany Library Association thanks the Friends of the Library for providing funds that cover the cost of charging electric vehicles at the library charging station for the entire calendar year of 2022. 

The EV charging station installation was made possible by a generous grant from the Connecticut Clean Cities Coalition and is a part of the Library’s strategic plan focus on sustainability in community services.  We are grateful to the Friends for their support of the Library Board’s vision and far-reaching efforts to help provide clean energy access for the Bethany Community. 

For more information about the Friends or the charging station, please contact Gayle Bogel, Library Director at 203-393-2103 during library hours, or email
