A Letter to our Friends
It is time once again to renew your membership with the Friends. We need your support now more than ever.
Covid-19 may have closed the library building to the public this spring, but the staff has continued its programming for children online and even conducted book clubs virtually. As the Colleyville Library gradually opens for business and adapts its procedures to all new safety guidelines, the staff continues to provide assistance to patrons. The format of the Summer Reading Program may be vastly different this year, but it will be part of the summer for the youngest patrons in our community.
These programs are supported, in part, by monies raised by the Friends of the Library. Membership dues, donations and used books sales have been the main sources of income over the past few years. Our in-house used book sales were suspended during the building shut down and we are not sure when that revenue opportunity will resume. The Friends Annual Used Book Sale in May, our largest fundraiser, had to be rescheduled and is on hold. At this time, membership dues and donations are the only financial support for the organization.
It is with this need in mind that I request you renew your membership with the Friends of the Library for the upcoming 2020-2021 year. Just click on the Become A Friends Member today button below for the new form.
You have been there for us in the past, we look forward to you being there with us in the future.
Thanks for being a Friend!
The Friends of the Colleyville Public Library
