Special Message during Pandemic
The Friends is an all-volunteer membership organization that normally raises over $150,000 each year to support Library collections, programs and services. This money is raised through the processing and sale of books donated by the community, annual membership fees and donations.
With the advent of the pandemic, the Friends pivoted to online book sales and virtual fundraising events to raise money safely, but the revenue we have been able to generate for the Library from these activities does not come close to replacing what we were able to generate in pre-COVID times with our weekend book sales and other in-person activities.
You can help us help the Library by buying great books and other items at bargain prices from the Friends Online Book Store and making a donation of any size to the Friends. And membership matters! If you are not a Friends member, please join or renew your membership today.
Annual Membership Meeting
Our annual meeting (held via Zoom this year) included a presentation of Friends activities and results for the year. Members voted on the annual board slate and proposed change to our Bylaws. Library Director Susan Brown shared an update on the Library’s re-opening status and plans.
