Cecil County Public Library will be celebrating National Friends of Libraries week October 16 – October 22. This nationally recognized week was established to raise awareness of the importance of community support for libraries, to encourage community members to join library Friends groups, and to recognize the wonderful ways Friends support libraries.
The Friends of the Cecil County Public Library is a non-profit membership group dedicated to promoting Cecil County’s library system as an essential institution in our community. Volunteer members advocate, educate, and raise funds for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library’s operating budget.
Friends volunteers will be at Cecil County Public Library branches throughout the week to give out bookmarks and answer questions about membership. Individual membership is $10 per year. Families can join for $15 and senior citizens or students for $7. Friends membership information is also available on the library’s website at: http://www.cecil.ebranch.info/about-us/support-us/friends-of-the-library/
