FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY Through their fundraising efforts, the Friends have made many things possible for our library, such as a new television and DVD player along with an AV cart, and partial funding for renovations made to the Children’s room in 2009. They provided $1,000 toward the installation of automatic doors for the library entrance, a feature that was much needed.
The main fundraiser for the Friends is the annual Christmas Raffle, in which there are typically over 100 possible prizes. The Friends also run the Mother’s Day Store and the Father’s Day Store, giving local children an opportunity to shop for a gift at no cost to them. The stores are stocked with donations from members and others within the community.
The Friends of the Library meet 3 times per year over a potluck luncheon to discuss upcoming projects. New members are always welcome! Dues are just $3 per year. A membership form and Friends’ updates are always included on page 4 of the monthly newsletter.
Current officers are: Co-presidents Carol Yoder and Dawn Davidhizar, Mary Todd, Secretary; and June Bakeman, Treasurer.
