October 9, 2014

Greetings All,

This letter is to bring attention to National Friends of Libraries Week, October 19 to 25, 2014 and our newly established Friends of the Glenwood City Library, Inc.

 The Friends had their first book sale during Rustic Lore Days and would like to salute the volunteers and community for their support. The sale was a success and well received. We have hopes to continue book sales on a regular basis and are exploring other fundraising avenues for the library, the scope of which will depend on the strength of the Friends group and community support.

Meetings are held at the library the first Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome to the meetings. We hope to create a strong and effective Friends group. The goal is to provide additional support to the library. In light of dire library financial situations these groups provide vital assistance so libraries can meet and enhance literacy and programming goals. The GC Friends group as an Incorporation will be able to access resources for the library that were previously unattainable.

Our group is always looking for more members and volunteers. There will be opportunities and varied ways to provide support to the library, and to the community as well. No commitment or service is too small. It is rewarding and brings us all together. Interested persons may contact Julian Bender, the President of Friends, or the library directly.

Remember, this library is your library and it can be your happening place. You can get great assistance from the super savvy staff, attend Tech Time classes, enjoy summer reading programs, download free music and books, browse a great movie selection, use the WIFI and computers, fax and so much more. It is my happy place. I hope to see you there.

Paula Brandt, 
Friends of the Glenwood City Library, Inc.
