  EVERYONE NEEDS A FRIEND

AND…

THE LIBRARY IS NO DIFFERENT!


FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY

Chapter One

The “Friends of the Valentine Public Library” was founded to offer volunteer support when needed and to make available a channel for individuals to express ideas for library use and services.  Friends will also help the library in raising funds to meet special library needs that fall outside of the annual budget.  They will aid the library in promoting knowledge of library programs and special events.  Friends are a part of the process of building up the importance of the library in the community.  Friends of the Valentine Public Library are just that, FRIENDS.

The Plot Thickens

The Friends  have worked long and hard to assist the library. They  supported the library financially during the the renovation process in 2010 and provided manpower when necessary.  Now the Friends continue to use their funds to assist the library in several wonderful and much needed projects that continue to improve the library.  Recent improvement projects include, remodeling the kitchen in the meeting room, landscaping the new front entrance, and providing more storage in the office area. The latest endeavor is to update the counters on the circulation desk and the card catalog. Additionally, they look for fun programming ideas for children (Stuffed Animal Sleepover) and for adults (Diva Night) that will not only entertain but entice the community to visit and enjoy the library.  The library always needs friends and support.  Won’t you consider being a Friend to your library?  We would love to have you.
