FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY BEGIN ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DRIVE!
Every library should have “Friends” and Valentine Public Library is fortunate to have many wonderful friends. The Friends of the Library are governed by a Board of Directors and supported by people who love the library. Could that be you? Will you consider joining us as a supporter? The Friends’ focus this year will be on raising funds to help the library purchase a new microfilm reader. They plan on continuing their support of children through their programs, “Books for Babies” and the reading incentive “1000B4K” for preschoolers.
Membership dues will go toward these projects and many more as they arise.
Membership levels are:
