November Friends Meeting

Hello Friends!

Our General Membership meeting will be held on Thursday, November 14th at 6:30 pm. At this time we will meet in the library annex (where the escape room was). 

We will have a report on the recent book sale as well as appointing  board members who will serve for the next year.  If you are interested in serving on the board in any capacity I urge you to attend this meeting or let me know in advance of the meeting. The board meets the second Thursday of odd numbered months at 6:30 pm.

 In addition, if you have items you would like to discuss please let me know by Wednesday, November 13th so it can be added to the agenda.

Thank you for being a part of The Friends of Liberal Memorial Library. Sheila Wells

Book Sale update

What a great Book Sale!  Our Fall Book Sale surpassed all  our expectations. I can’t wait for our General membership meeting on November 14th at 6:30 to give everyone the details.

Mark your calendars now and plan to join us. This meeting is also important for anyone wanting to serve on the Friends Board for the upcoming year.

I would also like to welcome all of our new members and say thank you to those who renewed their memberships last week. We appreciate your support for the library.

As a way to help promote community involvement and the Friends, we will be participating in the Seward County United Way Trick or Treat on Sunday evening October 27th from 5-7 pm. If you would like to help decorate our table and hand out treats please be at the mall by 4:00pm. We could also use some candy donations as they are expecting around 1000 people to attend. If you cannot attend but would like to donate candy you can drop off donations to the library by Friday.

Book Sale schedule and Friends Month

Greeting Friends of the Library,

Here are some things to be aware of in the month of October.

Our Fall Book Sale will be October 14-19.

As always, Monday the 14th is the opening reception for the Friends from 6-8 pm. If one or two of you would be willing to provide 3 dozen cookies it would really be appreciated.

In addition, we will need volunteers to staff the sale as much as possible to take some of the burden off the library staff. Let me know what hours and days work best for you. Even one hour helps a lot.

In response to public request we will open the book sale on Saturday from 11-2.

Finally, October is National Friends of the Library month. In celebration we will have a “Recommended Reads” display in the library. If you have a favorite book(s) you would like to recommend please email me with the titles within the next week. Make sure the titles you recommend ones that our library owns.

Thank you for serving the Friends of the Library

July Meeting Cancelled

Hello everyone,

 With the busyness of summer and the fact that we have no  business to discuss, I am cancelling the July board meeting.

We will meet again on September 12th where we will discuss the next book sale and get a report on the Summer Reading program.

Have a great remainder of the summer.


Summer Reading Program update

We have an updated list of items needed for Summer Reading craft projects.  If you can provide any of the items it would be greatly appreciated. The list is below.

Supply list:

  • Marbles
  • Round plastic lids
  • Cereal Boxes
  • Small plastic water bottles (empty of course)
  • Spray paint
  • Aquarium rocks or gravel or other small stones

Also, I gave incorrect information regarding the Freddy’s Fun Night volunteer opportunity.

Freddy’s Fund Night will be on the first TUESDAY of each month from 5-8 pm at Freddy’s.

Don’t forget we have Summer Reading Kick-off party from 2-4pm on Monday. Volunteers are still needed for that as well. Please contact the library if you can help out.

Have a good weekend,
