Friends of the Parkersburg & Wood County Public Library
Do 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.
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, 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. Annual membership dues are $2 per person and $5 for a family.
Thanks to all who donated, volunteered, and supported our recent book sale October 18-19! The Friends of the Library will meet Tuesday, January 7, 2014, at 5:30PM at Los Agaves Restaurant on Emerson Avenue. We would love to have new volunteers with fresh ideas and energy to help us with future activities. Mark your calendars now for the next book sale: set-up will be Thursday, April 10 and the sale will be Friday and Saturday April 11-12 from 9:00-5:00. We may add Thursday evening to the sale hours for Friends members only in addition to the Friday 9-12 Friends only time -- what do you think? Please let us know as we would really appreciate Friends' input.A True Friend is the greatest of all blessings, and the one which we take least thought to acquire, - wrote La Rochefoucauld
