Cookie Walk

AMESBURY, MA - The holidays are fast approaching and who doesn’t like cookies? Assuage your sweet tooth guilt by buying cookies at the third annual Cookie Walk - perfect way to support the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library.

Cookie Walk 2013 will be held on Thurs., December 5, at 6:30 p.m., after the library closes.

“For the past two years we have been very successful in raising money through the Cookie Walk program to go to the Friends of the Library,” said Erin Matlin, assistant APL director of the Amesbury Library. “The Friends then turn that money around and give it all back to the library. We use this money to help fund programs and purchase supplies.”

All proceeds from the sale will go to the Friends, whose mission is to support the library and its staff, and to enhance the resources and services of the library.

The funds raised from memberships, fundraisers like the Cookie Walk, and the Book Shop pay for educational, cultural and technical programs for adults, teens and children, including museum passes subscriptions, refreshments, prizes and supplies for programs and activities, new furnishings, technology aids and any special requests made by the library staff.
