These last weeks of August are transition weeks here at the library, and they always make me feel a bit melancholy. August is a month of goodbyes – to our kids going off (or returning) to college (good luck Josh, Thomas, Annelise, and Noah), to summer patrons scattering back across the nation, and to our extended summer hours.
Specifically, they need new members. And continuing members to renew. And donations for the Fall Book Sale. And possibly some volunteers who would be willing to bring treats for a library program or work a Sunday shift once per month or sort through donations or any of a myriad number of other ways the Friends help the library each and every day.
It's no secret - the Caestecker Public Library wouldn't be nearly so wonderful without our Friends. Membership starts at $5 for the year. Won't you join us?
Thank you to everyone who came out last weekend and made the Friends Summer Book Sale another resounding success. With your help another $2900 was raised to help fund programs and materials here at the library. Well done.
