Friends of the Library Newsletter – Fall 2022

The Friends of the Library are an active group of volunteers whose mission is to provide support for the services and programs of the Livonia Public Library. Volunteers meet this mission by helping with Library programs, events and fund raising efforts.

Funds are raised by the Friends in three ways:

  • Membership dues
  • The Friends Used Book Store
  • The Used Book Sales

 

Used Book Sales

The Friends are currently accepting used book donations at the Bennett Civic Center Library. Please remember that we can only accept items in good condition. No encyclopedias, magazines, vhs tapes or cassette tapes will be accepted. Please limit your drop-offs to 5 boxes or bags per day so the Friends of the Library are not overwhelmed with their sorting duties.
