About the Friends
The board members of the Friends have decided to simplify their organizational responsibilities. We will now be a sub-committee of the Finance and Development Committee of the Library Board of Trustees. Membership dues will no longer be collected. Recent donations and dues received will be donated to the Liebner Fund (if anyone would like their money back, it will be refunded).
Our main focus will now be the Book Sale. This year the Sale will be held June 28th – June 30th. Donations will be accepted as of June 17th.
The Friends will make a substantial donation to the Liebner Fund and continue to support the Summer Reading program and the Faye Devine Grant. We also look forward to helping the library staff with projects as part of a volunteer corps.
