National Friends of Libraries Week

BBLF LogoSince the early 1970's, our very dedicated and active Friends of the Library have supported the Library by raising funds to purchase materials to supplement the library's collection, buy special equipment and supplies, fund special  programs for all ages, and hire additional staff during busy times.

With next week being National Friends of Libraries Week, we want to make sure our Friends get the recognition it deserves. Starting tomorrow you will find our Friends available in different parts of the building at various times. Make sure you stop and chat to get caught up on all the latest goings on with its support of the branch. The members shouldn't be hard to find. They'll be the ones with the treats!
