Happy Holidays from the Friends of the Library. We are very grateful to the community for another successful year. The continued donation of gently used books to the Book Cellar and the wonderful volunteers that serve by sorting, shelving and displaying the books have allowed us to continue to provide cultural and educational activities for the community.
“A book is a present you can open again and again.” Book Cellar books make terrific gifts. Stop by and visit us in the lower level of the library. While making a selection for someone else you might find a new read for yourself.
A wonderful way to give a lasting remembrance to a friend or family member is to make a donation in their name to the Friends of the Elk Rapids District Library. We will send an acknowledgement to the honored recipient. Your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. The Friends happily welcomed new board members.
Serving on the board for 2017 are:
Chair: Susan Calkins
Vice Chair: Sharon Bacon
Treasurer: Nell Lockhart
Secretary: Judith Lewandowski
Fund Raising: Cathy Walle
Public Relations: Linda Smith Bell
Book Cellar: Terri Hogarth
Corresponding Secretary: Nancy Evans
“Good libraries create services, great libraries create communities." Please join the Friends in our commitment to create enhancement and enrichment for our community library.
Best Wishes for a Happy New Year.
