The Friends of the Library made a wonderful monetary contribution to the Hayner Public Library District. They donate the proceeds from their book sales which are generally held four times throughout the year. They also keep carts in the downtown and mall libraries, selling high-quality and popular books ($2.00 for hardcover and $1.00 for other materials). The donations from the friends are used to fund special projects for the Library District. In 2016, the Friends afforded us the opportunity to upgrade our security cameras in all three libraries as well as installing on-street cameras at our downtown location. You, too, can support the Friend organization by becoming a volunteer for the Friends of the Library.
If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Library, please call Carole Conley at (618) 466-8514. They are always looking for new volunteers to help sort book donations and/or work at the book sales. It’s a great group to work with and the perfect volunteer opportunity for anyone who loves books!
