How fortunate we are to having a caring and supporting community for our Friends and Library.  The $22,000 range was reached the night of our auction but our attendees also reached out to support the Capital Campaign for the new library with an additional $1,600.  Of course, not only money was raised that night, but friendships and an awareness for the need of a new library.


Our Amazon team is busily working away and it is highly successful with our online sales.  In fact, some additional help would be most welcome.  A few minutes of training is all that is needed if you enjoy doing some computer time.  If interested, leave your information with the staff at the library checkout desk.


Enjoy the upcoming holidays and remember to grab a couple of books and DVDs along with your bread and milk when Old Man Winter comes a-knocking.

Before you know it we’ll be talking Basket Bingo in the Spring!

Libraries are free….except they really aren’t.  Please help us continue to fund the library with all it’s many services to the community.






The Friends’ donations of $100,000 for the capital campaign and $25,000 for the Tranquility Garden for the new library are in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
