The Friends of the Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library will host their annual Volunteer Appreciation Day and Open House of the Library on Wednesday, February 24th from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
We have extended the hours for the Volunteer Appreciation & Open House for those who have not had an opportunity to come by and see the "facelift" that the library received. During the month of January, the library was closed to allow for a fresh coat of paint and new carpet. The carpet was loose and wrinkled in several areas of the Library making it a hazard and the paint was dingy. Now we have a beautiful library again that we should all take great pride in!
The Friends will also be recognizing the volunteers who give their time and efforts and talents to the library tasks to aid the staff in any way. Their contributions are extremely beneficial in the day to day operations of the library.
This day is also the kickoff to begin the 2010 membership drive for the Friends of the Library. It is an excellent opportunity to become a new member of the Friends or to renew your membership and get involved by supporting the projects that the Friends will be participating in this year!
Becoming a member is easy and forms may be picked up at the front desk of the library. Remember that contributions for membership are deductible for income tax purposes! Membership dues are as follows:
Student - $1.00
Individuals - $2.00
Family - $5.00
Supporting - $10.00
Business Firms, Organizations and Civic Clubs - $25.00
Patron - $100.00
Life - $250.00 (no annual renewal)
The funds that are collected from annual dues and from fundraising events are used to support the library in various ways. In the past, these funds have been used to purchase new books, purchase supplies or equipment for the library, and many more needs of the library.
Stop by the library on February 24th for some refreshments and to help us recognize our volunteers and to view our beautiful library! We invite you to become a member of the Friends of the Library so that you may be a part of the worthwhile projects to benefit the library. We hope to see you at the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Day and Open House!
