OGDENSBURG — The Friends of the Ogdensburg Public Library announced Friday the receipt of a $25,000 gift, the first major donation to the recently incorporated group that supports the library’s programs and services.

Drs. Ravinder and Barbara Agarwal donated $25,000 to create the Barbara and Ravinder Agarwal Fund.

The fund may be used for library materials and to allow the Friends to sponsor children’s programs and contests, especially to promote writing, public speaking and similar skills. The donors have stipulated the money should be spent within five years.

“We know that these are hard times for library budgets,” Mr. Agarwal said in a prepared statement. “And we know that many people depend on their library for books, movies, music and computer access.”
