Friends of the Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library
DDo you really love your library? Would you like to see the Parkersburg-Wood County Library be the best it can be? Then maybe you should look into joining the Friends of the Library. We are looking for new members who want to help us improve the local library and promote literacy in the area.
The Friends currently have two books sales a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The proceeds from the book sales provide financial support to the Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library by helping to sponsor the Young Readers' Summer Program, buying new materials, furniture, and computer equipment, and supporting the WV Library Association and the Literacy Volunteers of the Mid-Ohio Valley.
For more information on the Friends of the Library please see the By-Laws (attached), check out our Friends of the Parkersburg-Wood County Library Facebook page, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact the library at 420-4587.
If you would like to become a member of the Friends, please visit the library and fill out a registration form at the circulation desk. Annual membership dues are $2 per person and $5 for a family. We are now offering a lifetime membership for $20 per individual contributor.
The next meeting of the Friends will be Tuesday, July 12 at 5:30PM at the South Parkersburg Library. Please join us and help us determine the direction the Friends will take in the future!A True Friend is the greatest of all blessings, and the one which we take least thought to acquire, - wrote La Rochefoucauld
