The inaugural meeting of the new Friends of the Library group will be held on Saturday, June 25 at 10:00 A.M. in the library. Coffee, tea, milk, and donuts will be served and all ages are welcome. The Friends have been a longstanding, integral source of support for our library. Come and learn more about the Friends and how you can play a part (large or small!) in supporting your community library. RSVP requested, but not required, at email@example.com or 734-439-1240.
