The Council of Friends of Lancaster County Public Libraries, Aaron’s Books and The Library System are working to make the 20th Anniversary Luncheon a spectacular event!    With David Baldacci as our guest speaker, we will fulfill on this promise!

The event will be held at the Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster, PA 17601.

In 2019, we hosted Paula McLain, the author of the New York Times bestselling novels, The Paris Wife, Love and Ruin and Circling the Sun.  Paula McLain captivated our audience of over 400 guests with the details of her writing process and the extensive research she accomplished to make The Paris Wife and Love and Ruin compelling reads!

About The Council of Friends

Established in 2000, the award-winning Council of Friends of Public Libraries is made up of volunteers who are avid readers and are committed to promoting reading countywide. The group has organized and hosted author events that have featured best-selling authors for the past 17 years.  In 2010, they formed a partnership with Independent Bookstore Aaron’s Books in Lititz that brings authors to Lancaster County while they travel on their national book tours.  This annual event is a fundraiser for the Public Libraries of Lancaster County.  Since 2011 the Council of Friends have raised over $100,000 for public libraries.
