National Friends of Libraries Week
The Crown Point Community Library has a great group of Friends!
Established in 1983, the Friends of the Crown Point Library is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds to benefit the library. They are dedicated to advocating for library services, promoting early literacy, and funding projects and programs to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
October 15-21, 2023 is the 18th annual National Friends of Libraries Week, and the Friends are celebrating the week by recognizing their 40 years of service, hosting their Fall Book Sale, selling tickets to their upcoming Bunco fundraiser, promoting their annual Chicago Bus Trip, and kicking off their membership drive with a special offer on a Lifetime Membership.
For a limited time, 40 vouchers for a single Lifetime Membership at the reduced cost of $75 (regularly $150) will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The vouchers can be picked up at the front desk at the Crown Point Library or the book sale and must be used by December 31, 2024.
