About the Friends of the Bridgman Library
The Friends of the Bridgman Library is an organization whose purpose is to unite people who are committed to enrich the services and activities of the Bridgman Public Library.
The Friends raise money through fundraisers and memberships. The annual fundraisers include: the Community-Wide Garage Sale in May and the Annual Book Sale in July. Another way the friends raise money is through the ongoing sale of gently used books in the Friends Book Shoppe. The monies raised by the friends allow the library to purchase new items and fund many programs for the community.
The Friends of the Bridgman Library operate a Book Shoppe inside the Library. All the books are "gently used." Items include hardcover and paperback books for both children and adults, used CDs, DVDs and audio books.
The Shoppe is opened year round.
Book Shoppe Hours
Tuesday-Thursday 11 am - 3 pm
Every Third Saturday 12 pm - 3 pm
