As the new president of the Friends Board, I am looking forward to an exiciting year! A lot of you already know me from my nearly 30 years of working for the library in children's, circulation and reference services, and I hope to make many more friends while serving on the Friends board.
I am looking forward to our semi-annual book sale, which will be August 20-25 in the Belt Branch Annex, starting with our special sale for Friends members the night of Monday, August 20.
If you are not a Friends member now, please consider joining. We fund so many worthwhile projects for the library and would love to have you become a member. Membership forms are available at our Friends Used Bookstore (drop in for a cup of coffee and browse the amazing selection of books and other materials!) and in both libraries.
Our vision: The Friends of the Rolling Hills Consolidated Library provide innovative and vital activities, resources, and services that support the dynamic, visionary Rolling Hills Consolidated Library (RHCL).
The Friends group supports the library by providing financial assistance for special programs like the summer reading program for children and by promoting use of the library to the community. They also support the Bestsellers Club by purchasing additional copies of bestselling books and funding author's visits. To raise money, the Friends operate the Friends Bookstore at the Belt Branch and holds annual used book sales.
