Tell me how you are involved with the Friends of the Library?
I am the secretary of the Friends of the Library
What does the Friends do to help the Boonslick Regional Library out?
We hold functions to raise money to use in several different ways. We use some of the money to help Gloria Barbour with her children's reading programs. We also furnish time and labor if and when she needs help. We are also raising money to furnish the new library.
What is the role of the Friends in the construction of a new library?
We can share information with the public about the library, but we don't have any role in the construction, that is handled by the library board.
What do you like most about the Friends?
I think it is very important to have a local library and the friends are trying to make sure we keep a good library that will cater to the whole communities needs. The best part about being a member of the Friends is meeting people who care about the quality of life in Boonville.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
There is a fund raiser on March 1 at Coopers Oak Winery from 7:30-9:30 p.m. There will also be a silent auction. People can come and have a little wine and a good time and make money for a good cause. There are also containers in several business around town for the building fund. If anyone is interested in becoming a Friend of the Library they can pick up some information at the library, we would love to have them as new members.
