Just about every library has a “Friends of” organization or a similar group that, due to their great love of books and reading, supports their public or private library. And in Napa it is US… the Friends of the Napa Library. Our members are from all walks of life and share an interest in maintaining a strong local free library. We further the mission of the library through funding many programs such as WorkForce, English as a Second Language classes and many children’s activities. We raise these funds through membership dues and our regionally popular Book Sales (see the post above, 10 Day Book Sales Return). We also sell ear buds and flash drives at the library.
So what does a membership get you? First of all, it allows you to support literacy, the library and your local community. For $.05 per day you help bring the joy of reading to children and adults and fund programs that enrich the lives of yourself and your neighbors. Membership also qualifies you to volunteer for the Book Sale by either sorting and cleaning donated books and/or working the Book Sales throughout the year. If volunteering for the Friends isn’t your thing, membership also gets you entrance to the first day of the Book Sales so you have access to the choicest selections.
If all of this wasn’t enough,we are currently holding a Membership Sale. Join before September 1 and your annual membership won’t expire until December 31 2018! Visit our Membership Page for more information and a link to join on-line.
BE A FRIEND AND BE SURE TO TELL A FRIEND!
