Friends of the Library

The Friends provide valuable support to the library through their volunteer and fund-raising activities. The Friends are an independent auxiliary group, with their own board of officers and bylaws, working in conjunction with the library to help provide the best service possible.

They meet on the second Monday of each month at 10:15 am, at the library. If youíre interested in joining the Friends, or serving as a volunteer, please contact the library. For 2014, the following officers are leading the Friends:

President Ann Davey
Vice-President Bonnie Kay
Treasurer Gay Budinger
Secretary Barb Fowler

To make a donation to the Friends, print out and mail this form. Your donation will help fund the ongoing development of the library. The Friends are a 501c3 charitable organization, so your donation may be claimed as a tax exemption.

The Friendsí primary fund-raising project is the annual vintage book sale, held in Glen Arbor. The 2014 sale begins with the Preview Party on Wednesday, August 6, from 7 to 9 p.m. A $5 admission fee is charged, and refreshments and appetizers will be served. The regular sale continues on Thursday, August 7, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and concludes with a bag sale on Friday, August 8, from 9 am to noon. Donations of quality used books and recordings for the sale can be brought to the library during normal business hours. Please note that donations should not be left in the library's book drops. The Friends sell quality used books throughout the year in the library as well, with a nice assortment available just inside the main entrance.

The Friends also host a tour of selected Glen Lake area homes every other year. The next home tour will take place in July 2015.
