It’s National Friends of Libraries Week! Since the beginning of the American library movement, Friends groups have been formed by citizens using their collective powers to do everything from running a book sale to ensuring that our American library legacy remains viable. Library Friends groups are incredibly important. They can literally make the difference between a budget increase and cut for their libraries. Are you interested in becoming more involved with your local library? If so, consider becoming a library Friend. By contributing as a library Friend, you can make a lasting difference for your library and community.
