November 2019

(From the November 2019 Circle of Friends Newsletter)

Every year at this time we remind you to renew your membership in the Friends of the Library. Membership runs from January 1 to December 31. Your continued support helps us fund our library’s community programs, including computer classes for adults, special speakers and concerts, wonderful children’s programs and much, much more.

In the past we have included renewal forms with this newsletter. This year we will send your renewal information separately. New membership cards will be available on October 31. You can return your renewal by mail in the return envelope we provide, or you can stop by the store and pay for your membership and pick up your new card on or after that date. As always, your membership includes discounts on purchases in our bookstore and at our three times a year book sales. 

The final book sale for this year will be December 6 to 8. As always, Friday night will be for members only from six to eight PM. Saturday hours are 10 to 4. And Sunday afternoon is the “Bag Sale,” when you can purchase a grocery bag full of books for only $4! We provide the bags.
 
As always, please stop by our BookStore when you are looking for a gift or just a book to treasure for yourself. We have a wide variety of quality books, including novels, mysteries, biographies, and non-fiction books on many topics. We have a section of non-English language books that includes novels as well as learning materials and dictionaries. And our children’s book section has books for toddlers, school-age children, and teens.  
 
I especially encourage you to take a look at the outer shelf of the bookstore (facing the parking lot), where we have a rotating selection of excellent high quality books.
 
In closing, I want to invite you to our annual meeting of the Friends of the Library on Wednesday, November 13 at 6:00 PM in the Chabot Room of the library. We will approve the library’s Wish List for the coming year and we will be electing a President, Secretary, Operational Treasurer, and two  At-Large Directors. Please join us if you can.
 
Kay Wetherwax, President
