During the quarter ending December 31st, 2017, the Friends provided a total of $10,940 to the Library. $9,989 of this was for the purchase of books and other materials. In addition, we provided $635 for movie licensing fees to support the Based on the Book film series and $336 to the Library’s Hospitality Fund, which is used for professional and technical staff meetings. This brings our total gifts for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017 to $15,241. Funds for these gifts come from book store and internet sales and from the proceeds from our regular book sales; from membership dues above the basic level; and from donations, including memorial donations; and from the sale of the 2018 Children’s Art Calendar. Thanks to all of our supporters for making these gifts possible.
