During the quarter ending September 30th the Friends provided $4,301 to the Library for the purchase of books and other materials. We also made our annual gift of $1,500 to the Humboldt County Children’s Author Festival. The Friends are one of the sponsors of the festival. 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. Thanks to all of our supporters for making these gifts possible.
