GS Library Friends begins membership drive
The Friends of the Library are in their fundraising season and membership drive. The membership to the Friends of the Library is $25 per family and $50 for business members. Money raised through the membership drive goes back to the library. Last year they were able to purchase a new printer and pay our annual Overdrive library subscription; they bought books for our children’s non-fiction collection and helped fund our summer reading program. They hosted our visit from Santa and the library’s 50-year anniversary party. The Friends raised money through the membership drive and by working concessions.
Over the last few years, funding from the Friends of the Library has been instrumental in adding new programs for the library. Fortunately we have received grants and other sources of funding to help pay for the everyday operating expenses of the library. We know that times will not always be as good as they have been the last few years, so continuing support from the Friends of the Library is essential to the operation of the library.
