Bi-annual Friends Meeting

Greetings Friends

I want to thank everyone who helped set up, work at the book sale, or visited. We had a very good week.

Our next meeting will be November 8th at 6:30 pm. This is our bi-annual meeting and is open to all Friends members. At that time we will have a report on the book sale as well as discuss upcoming library events and projects.

We have partnered with Better World Books to resell some of the left over books. Help will be needed to scan and box books for shipment. If you have some extra time to help out during library hours please let me know. It will be an ongoing process for several weeks and you can work at your convenience.

I hope to see you on November 8th.

No friends meeting in July

Hello Friends,

It has been awhile since you have heard from me and I am sorry for that. To be honest there has not been much going on in the “Friends” world. There will be no board meeting this month.  Our next meeting will be September 13th. We will discuss the Fall Book Sale at that meeting.

I hope to see many of you then. Have a great remainder of the summer.

Sheila Wells
