Among Friends

News from the Friends of the Siuslaw Public Library

Help Needed

The Friends of the Library have raised thousands of dollars over the years for the Siuslaw Library; money well spent by one of the finest small libraries in Oregon. Now, FOL can use your creativity, new ideas, and a few hours of your time throughout the year. Some of the jobs available are sorting books, assisting during book sales, welcoming new members by phone, or planning new events or encouraging new membership. Just a few hours here and there make all the difference in how strong our organization will be in the years to come.

Book Sale

Thanks to all of the Friends volunteers who helped put on the Fiction Book Sale on June 14th—and especially the Library supporters who shopped at the sale—we earned nearly $1,000 for our libraries! The next book sale will be one of the twice-yearly BIG sales, held on Labor Day Weekend, Saturday August 30th and Sunday August 31st. We’re planning a special Friday evening Friends Only Preview Sale on the 29th—stay tuned for details!

Move Over Hallmark

Tuesday, July 15

This fun event for members of the Friends of the Library group allows participants to use their creativity and produce unique cards that are crafted from books and magazines no longer in use. The event is fun, festive, and results in greeting cards that are sold to raise funds for the Library. Beautiful old books are provided, as is some basic instruction. If possible, participants should bring old magazines as glue pads, permanent glue sticks, and a craft knife.
