Are You a Friend?

I have often written here about our very good friends, The Friends of the Kalamazoo Public Library. I am writing about them again to share their goal of increasing their membership.

The Friends goal is 150 or more (!) new members. That’s a very reasonable goal for a community our size with a strong history of support for the library.

Once again this year, the Friends are funding our summer reading games for all ages: the game cards, programs, prizes, the end of summer concert – about $25,000 worth – and that’s only about half of their annual gift to the library.

Selling gently used books, gently priced in their bookstore is their major source of income. Memberships provide a secondary source of revenue.

Membership brochures are available throughout the library and in the bookstore, of course. You can also join through our website.

Please consider joining; membership levels range from $5 - $100 and are tax deductible.

I'm embarrassed to say I let my membership lapse! Just sent in my renewal after receiving a "did you forget" message. It's an honor to support an organization devoted to supporting the library.
