Opinion: Consider joining Friends of the Library to help support library


The Friends of the Sumter County Library have begun their annual membership campaign. Current members will be receiving their renewal form shortly. If you are not a member, applications are available at all library locations.

Please consider joining. The Friends provide critical support for many library programs and services, especially our annual Summer Reading Program. Also, members can attend Preview Night on Thursday, Nov. 7, for the annual book sale.

The Friends have helped the library in so many ways over the years - once even paying to replace the generator on our Bookmobile. And on that subject, the Friends have started a "Bookmobile Fund" to purchase a new Bookmobile so the library can continue to provide this important service for many years to come.

As Sue Griffin, Friends president, says, "We welcome donations large and small, from people and businesses." For more information, contact the Library at (803) 773-7273.
