FRIENDS OF THE PARCHMENT COMMUNITY LIBRARY

friends of the libraryWHO WE ARE
 
The Friends of the Parchment Community Library are men and women who value the services the library provides to our community, and who participate in fund-raising events to support library programs.  
 
In recent years, the Friends have raised several thousand dollars a year for new equipment, programming, and materials.   Last year, the Friends
  • renewed the library's subscription to "Book Page," a monthly publication available to library patrons for free
  • paid for library programming for adults and children, including the Summer Reading Program
  • continued library lawn care & maintenance 
  • paid for the Library Staff Appreciation Luncheon
Everyone is welcome to join the Friends!

GOT BOOKS?
 
Please donate your gently-used books to our Friends of the Library booksales.
 
Clean off your shelves and help the library at the same time!
 
We take ALL books (and DVDs, videos & CDs) except textbooks and encyclopedias.
 
Also, books that are smoky, dirty, or moldy are better off taken to the recycling center.
