The week of Oct. 16-22 was National Friends of the Library week and  we wanted to take some take to recognize this group for all the do for the library.  The Friends work diligently each year to help provide the money needed to special projects at the library and they are the volunteers who are working at all the big events that library hosts.  Without them the library would never be able to provide the quality materials and events that we do for our community.  

Just last month our Friends of the Library purchased our annual Overdrive subscription for the library.  Overdrive is the program that we use for our eBooks, downloadable audio books, and streaming video.  Currently the Friends of the Library are working on fundraising by hosting concessions for Big Salt Bingo.  They are also working on hosting Santa for Salt City Christmas, and working on the library’s 50th anniversary party.  Our picture with Santa event during Salt City Christmas is always a huge hit.  Last year we had over seven hundred people come through that library that evening.  The Friends worked hard to get the library ready for the event and they always love getting to interact with the families that evening.  The Friends of the Library always give money to go towards our summer reading program and we very grateful for that support.  During the summer, we have almost twice as many people visit each month and the extra funding from the Friends help us provide quality entertainment and goes towards purchasing new books for the children to enjoy.
