2017 National Friends of Libraries Week, part 3

Today we highlight perhaps the most obvious Friends of our Library – the Friends of the Lindsborg Library (FoLL) group. FoLL consists of a governing board and many more general members. Through fundraising projects such as the annual book sale and membership dues, FoLL supports many Library events. In 2017, examples of FoLL sponsorship include movie nights and Taste of Travel evenings, Cook & Eat classes for children, Makerspace supplies, Rolling Hills “Zoo to You” program, book bags, new books and DVDs, support for our window replacement fund, and more.

The Library greatly benefits from the continued sponsorship of FoLL – and that sponsorship is growing. As of October 2017, the Friends group is comprised of 4 Patrons, 19 Families, 41 Individuals, and 1 Student – and 25 of those memberships are new this year! We are greatly encouraged by the growth of this group whose primary function is support for our Library. Thank you so much!

This week we have been celebrating Library Friends – and any such listing will surely remain incomplete at best. Beyond the highlighted groups there are many more friends, volunteers, and donors whose contributions all support our Library’s goal of always improving service that provides continued education, enrichment, exploration, and enjoyment in our patrons’ lives. All Library Friends make our Library a better place and we would not be as excellent without contributions large, small, and every size between.

Many thanks for your continued support!
