Nelson book buddies seek new members

The Friends of the Nelson Library raised $7,000 last year for special projects for the library.

The Friends of the Nelson Library (or “The Friendlies,” as they’re sometimes known) raised $7,000 last year for special projects for the library.

Now, they’re looking for new members to help out with book sales and other Friends’ fundraising activities. The next sale is the Kid-sized Book Sale at the library on April 9.

Pictured, chief librarian June Stockdale and Friends Bev Roberston, Elaine Moore, and Catherine Brochhagen gather in the Book Nook featuring a mural by illustrator Nichola Lytle one of the Friends’ 2015 projects.
