October 16-22 Is National Friends Of The Library Week!

October 16-22 Is National Friends Of The Library Week!

 A library can use all the Friends it can get! This week,  designated as "National Friends Of The Library Week," is a good one in which to celebrate the good work the Friends do, and thank them with support: Join up, donate, or check out one of their fund-raising efforts. Many Great River Regional Library (GRRL) branches have a Friends group (see the Payneville branch Friends of the Library logo, pictured), and new members are always welcome. Check with your local library, or learn more from the Minnesota Association of Library Friends, or check out this message from Friends of the Library USA.
