The Friends of the Homer Library would like to thank the generous book-worms and master gardeners who donated books and plants to our 2012 Fall Book & Plant Sale, the avid readers and plant lovers who turned out to buy them, and the volunteers who helped make it all come together.
The Friends fall and spring book/plant sales are major fundraisers, bringing in, on the average, more than $2,000. Proceeds go directly to support programs and services at the library, including free ongoing programs such as the Summer Reading Program, weekly story/lapsit hours, technology workshops, Top Drawer, and the Get Lit! series, as well as one-time capital purchases such as e-readers and DVD shelving.
And next time youre enjoying a warm, winter, quiet read in the fireplace room? well, that lovely propane heat also is courtesy of the Friends. Enjoy.
See you next spring.
