Are you one of the people who have discovered the bargains at the Friends of the Wellington Public Library yearly book sale? Did you wonder how they they are able to do it every year? A small group of dedicated workers and civic minded individuals who are members of Friends make it possible.
What is the Friends? The Friends is a group of volunteers who recognize the value of the Library’s programs for the community and are willing to give time to support them.
The purpose of the Friends of the Wellington Public Library is to raise funds to support and strengthen the needs and programs of the Library, especially those that encourage life long reading.
The annual book sale, usually in April, and mini-sale in the Fall provide money for special programs that are underfunded, such as the children’s summer reading program, audio books, computer software, large print books and special requests.
Over the past 21 years, Friends has provided such needs as the flag pole, the book drop, the bicycle rack, and numerous informational programs.
You can show your support for this great community resource by joining the Friends group which has small yearly dues. The Friends is open to the public so you may wish to attend the quarterly meetings (February, May, August, and November) to learn more about them and contribute ideas for advancing the organization and the Library.
