Membership drive for Friends of the Trail Public Library

Membership by donation; all money and fundraising supports the Trail and District Public Library

It’s time to renew your membership to the Friends of the Trail Public Library.

The annual membership drive will take place on March 8 and 9 at both Ferraro Foods and at the Waneta Plaza.

Membership is by donation and all money from both the membership drive and fund raising efforts goes to support the Trail Library.

The Friends purchases items for the library that do not fall within their budget. This year they purchased five Ipads for the STEAM youth programs and in the past have purchased the Reader Rabbit costume, magazine racks for the youth section and other capital items as well as making a $10,000 donation to the library’s building campaign.

This year the Friends have launched a highly successful Fun Scrabble afternoon on a monthly basis. Every Scrabble day the community room is packed with 25 – 27 people concentrating on their next move. It is a fun afternoon because no one keeps score. Check with the library to find out the next date.

Other ways to support the Friends, in addition to becoming a member, is buying a label with your name on it to adopt a library shelf. You can also purchase used books at the library and all money goes to the Friends who stock and manage the shelves. Check out all of this information at the used book shelves clearly marked as belonging to the Friends.

The Friends of the Trail Library are proud to support the new facility with it has expanded programs and will continue to provide financial assistance where required.
