One Can Never Have Too Many Friends

The Library is looking even better now that we have our new stands for the “card catalog” computers. For a long while now we have been needing replacements for the old ones which did not match our beautiful light colored Circulation and Information counters. Our warm thanks go out to our Friends of the Library for purchasing all seven of the stands.

Friends groups support libraries in very special ways. Public libraries are forbidden by law from fundraising, so the Friends are frequently true life savers. By raising funds through book sales and the annual Christmas House Tour, items are purchased which fill needs that are not part of regular Library budget expenditures. Sometimes it might be a special set of books, a display unit, or in this case a much needed upgrade to our fixtures.

Come by the Library and see some of the improvements our Friends group has provided us, including the cozy glider rocker in the Children’s Department. And if you would like to join the Friends of the Library, we can help you with that, too.

After all, one can never have too many Friends.

Don't forget the Friends Christmas Tour of Homes on December 6, 2 - 5 pm.
