National Friends of Libraries Week
October 19-25, 2014
Friends of Libraries groups have their very own national week of celebration! United for Libraries will coordinate the ninth annual National Friends of Libraries Week Oct. 19-25, 2014. The celebration offers a two-fold opportunity to celebrate Friends. Use the time to creatively promote your group in the community, to raise awareness, and to promote membership. This is also an excellent opportunity for your library and Board of Trustees to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library.
