Things We Do
Used Book Sale -- Our Major Fund Raiser
Lake High School Wrestling Team
We thank the Lake High School wrestling team for helping to move the books from storage. They are among the many volunteers who logged a total of 600 hours to move, organize, and sell books. Thanks to the dedicated members who give their time each year for this major fund raiser. We always welcome new members to join us in participating in this and many other fun projects.
REMEMBER: We collect books throughout the year. Please bring donations to the Lake Library at 11955 Market Ave. N. during library hours.
Reading at Altercare
Volunteers read at Altercare the first Friday of every
month. We welcome all Friends of the Library members
to help with this very worthwhile and satisfying project.
Need help with your computer skills?
The Computer Tutors program offers free instruction for the beginner as well
as those looking to upgrade their computer skills. Friends of the Library
volunteers will answer your computer-related questions.
Fall, winter and spring sessions are offered at the library on Tuesdays
9:00 - 11:00 AM and 3:00-4:00 PM.
Participants with laptops are encouraged to bring them.
Volunteers planted and now maintain our garden for the enjoyment
of the public. Young children associate each letter of the alphabet
with a corresponding plant as they enjoy story time in the garden.
FOL volunteers set up and maintain a library at the Hartville Migrant
Center for children of seasonal workers. The proximity of this facility to
where they live provides the children with an opportunity to
explore the world of books. At the beginning of each school year,
we pack a book bag with required school supplies for each child.
Volunteer at the Library
Friends of the Library members are often called on to volunteer at the library in
various capacities. Under the direction of one of the librarians, you may find us
helping with library programs, shelving books, preparing materials for children’s
programs, or just being a much-needed extra set of hands.
Book Bags at Migrant Center
Each year the Friends of the Library
pack book bags for children of the
migrant center families.
