Friends of the Library

Just thought I would share some of the recent Friends of the Library projects. They have recently purchased a wonderful rug for the children's section. It has an alphabet border surrounding a family of bunnies who are all reading books and is quite stunning. The kids love it! Below is a picture of our Tuesday night storytime group on the rug.
The friends have also recently refinished a table that was purchased in 1912 when the library was in the Carnegie Building. It is a beautiful table and the old saying "they just don't make 'em like they used to" seems to fit it wonderfully. Below is a picture of some of the Friends with the table.
Friends of the Library is a nationwide non-profit, volunteer driven organization that raises funds for the library. The main fundraising is accomplished through two books sales that take place in the spring and the fall of each year. For more information on how to get involved with the Friends of the Library, just contact the library.
