As Thanksgiving approaches, the Hutchinson Library is especially grateful to its Friends of the Library group for contributions that enrich library materials and services. The Hutchinson Friends of the Library was formed in 1989 and has now contributed 25 years of service. Congratulations and thank you Friends!
The Friends group of volunteers contributes hundreds of hours each year sorting and pricing books that are donated to the library. These books are sorted into two categories: indoor and outdoor sales. Our outdoor sale on September 13th was a great success. The total receipts exceeded $2,113.75 plus an additional $250 grant from Thrivent yielded a grand total of $2363.75.
The Friends also manage an ongoing indoor book sale each year. This sale is always open during regular library hours. The Christmas book sale will start just before Thanksgiving. There will be many Christmas theme books that are new or nearly-new, jigsaw puzzles, and Christmas ornaments. Stop in and shop for a Christmas gift for someone who loves books!
Donations in good condition are always welcome. We would like to receive hard cover fiction or nonfiction, children or young adult books, audiobooks, and DVD’s.
If you would like to join the Hutchinson Library Friends the dues are just $10.00 annually but the friendships priceless. For further information about Library Friends ask a library staff member.
