Book Sale Update

Greetings Everyone

The Fall Book Sale starts next week and we are hoping for a great turnout! Just a reminder, Monday from 6-8 pm is the Friends of the Library Reception and Presale. We will have refreshments available and you have first chance to purchase some great books.

If any one is interested in helping to set up the sale we will do that at 10 am on Monday. It shouldn’t take more than an hour.

Also, if you would like to help out in the evenings from 6-8 please let me know. We can always use an extra hand.

Our next membership meeting is November 9th at 6:30 pm. We will have our book sale report available and we also have a couple of board positions available for any interested in serving.

If you have not renewed your membership this year, please consider doing so during the book sale.

Have a great weekend
Sheila


Fall Update

Greetings Fellow Friends

I know it has been awhile since some of you have heard from us so I wanted to send everyone an update.

This past spring we received a matching grant from Friends of Kansas Libraries which we used to purchase a nice wooden book cart for the new Book Buddies program. Stop by the children’s library and take a look at it!

It is time once again for the FALL BOOK SALE! It is scheduled for October 16-19. As always Monday the 16th is Friends Members Only. We will have refreshment available for all members who stop by the sale. Hours are 6-8pm. We are also taking donations of gently read books for the sale, just drop them off at the library before 10am on the 16th.

In the past we have been lax in monitoring our membership renewals, however it has become necessary to update our rolls and ensure that all memberships are up to date. Therefore, if you have not renewed your membership in 2017 please do so by our Bi-Annual meeting in November.

The cost is only $5 for individual or $10 for families.  This is extremely affordable as many libraries charge upwards of $50 for their memberships. And remember, you can now renew your membership online through PayPal. Just visit the friends link on the library website.

Thank you all for you support of the Liberal Memorial Library through the Friends!

Our next meeting will be November 9th at 6:30 pm

Best regards
Sheila Wells


Friends Updates

Greetings Friends,

We recently received a grant from Friends of Kansas Libraries which will be used for the purchase of a wooden book cart for the library’s new Budding Bookworms program. The board also voted to give the library $250 for the Summer Reading program.

I hope you all have a great day. Our next board meeting is July 13th at 6:30 pm

Friends Meeting - May

Just a note to let everyone know about the Friends meeting this Thursday, May 11th at 6:30 pm.

We have a lot of updates and new and exciting things happening in the library that we want to tell you about.

If you have something you would like to discuss, please contact me so that I can add it to the agenda. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Sheila Wells, Friends president


Book Sale Report

Greetings friends

The final totals are in and the deposit had been made. Our book sale brought in a total of $528! That is a great total considering that our sale was one day shorter due to the Good Friday holiday.

Our next meeting will be on May 11th at 6:30 pm at the library. This meeting will serve as our twice yearly general meeting. At the meeting we will be discussing donations to the summer reading program and Baby’s Bookshelf as well as some new changes and options available on our website. We do have a couple of board positions that are open and we would like to fill those at that time. The board meets on the second Thursday of odd numbered months, so it is not a large time commitment for anyone.

Thank you all for your support of the library through your commitment to the Friends of the Library. I hope to see many of you at the next meeting.

Have a great day!
Sheila
