Crown Point Community Library

Library Friends


Bunco players of all skill levels are invited to come out for a night of dice rollin’ fun to help raise money for books! Bunco for Books is a fundraiser hosted by the Friends of the Crown Point Library. Proceeds go towards the purchase of books and other supplies to support the Crown Point Library’s literacy outreach efforts including Book Babies, book discussion groups and more.

$100 Bunco prize! Pizza dinner from Rosatti’s in Crown Point, awesome door prizes from local business and a lot of fun!

The event will take place at the Crown Point Community Library on Friday, November 1 from 6 – 9 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person or $30 for Friends members and include your game entry, dinner, and two raffle tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the Crown Point Library beginning September 15.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with the first “roll” beginning at 7 p.m. During the social hour before the game begins, attendees may enter raffles, eat dinner and learn how to play the game. Rules and directions will be available on every table, so no prior experience is necessary.

If you are interested in supporting our event with a raffle donation or monetary sponsorship please fill out this form or contact Laura at (219) 306-4599, email: lclemons@crownpointlibrary.org

 


Meet The Friends

Mission:
To enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library. To raise funds to support library programs, services and to help fund items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget.

The Friends of the Crown Point Community Library have supported special programs and help to purchase items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget. They have made it their mission to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.

When you join us, you’ll:

  • Sponsor programs and literacy initiatives for adults, children, and teens
  • Enable lively cultural events that attract non-traditional library users
  • Volunteer at Library events and book sales
  • Support pro-library advocacy to government officials and the general public

Many Friends volunteer by helping with the monthly and annual book sales, fundraising, and promoting the library. In addition to membership dues, money raised from the Literary Luncheon and book sales support on-going adult, children, and teen events, provide prizes for summer reading programs and help purchase equipment not covered in the general budget.

As a member of the Friends of the Crown Point Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year – with children’s smiles, the sincere appreciation of the library’s hardworking staff and the pure satisfaction of knowing you make a difference in your community!
