Friends of the Library,
Once again we
are preparing for the Friends annual meeting and book sale.
As part of the Lioness Memorial Day celebration we will have
a tent at the Lakewood Town Hall grounds on Sunday, May 30.
We will have a
great selection of books this year, including many children's
books and newer hardcovers. As an exciting new feature, we will
be drawing names for free books (for adults and children) throughout
the book sale.
We still need
book donations - this is a great time to clean your bookshelves!
Bring book donations to the library in Lakewood. We also need
workers to help set up and take down after the show - just leave
your name at the library.
Spring is here
and the first bulbs are poking through the ground in front of
the library. We have ordered more bulbs to bloom after the tulips
and crocus. Jane and Stan Lapacz care for the flower beds and
they would love help planting the bulbs and annuals generously

The library board
has set up an endowment fund for supplementing future expenditures
and has asked the Friends for seed money. The Friends' board

fund, and will contribute to the construction of a new parking
lot, which is badly needed. If you have any other suggestions
as to how best use funds raised by the Friends of the Library
please contact one of the officers. We are always appreciative
This year, our
annual meeting will be held in conjunction with the book sale.
Both president and secretary are up for reelection. These are
two-year terms. Nominations will be taken from the floor but
we would like to go into the meeting with a ballot of candidates.
If you are interested, call at 715-276-6712.
I have held this
position much longer than our constitution allows and am getting
a little burned out. There are only two events that take time
and effort, both money-raisers, and three meetings per year
that are involved in these jobs. PLEASE think seriously about
getting involved - it's your library, too!
Barb Konopacky, President
