In January of 2012, the Friends began sending out what will become an annual membership drive letter.  Click here to view / print a copy, which can be used to join this low-cost organization that brings back considerable value to our community.  Those who join will receive a mailed or emailed (your choice) edition of our quarterly newsletter, which gives all of the behind-the-scenes information about upcoming events at your library.
