The Friends of the Richmond Hill Library is a nonprofit organization interested in good library services. They work to increase the programs and services of the library and to enrich the cultural opportunities available to the citizens of Bryan County.
Activities of the organization include sponsoring special projects, informing the public of resources and services available through the library, securing materials that are beyond the library’s budget and performing other services deemed helpful to the library and the library staff.
The annual book sale has been the main fundraiser for the organization, and the Friends use the funds year round to supplement the budget of the library. The Friends rely on donations of good used books from the community to hold their annual sale.
The spring book sale was such a huge success the Friends have decided to hold a fall book sale. This is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 14. This will be a book sale only, no yard sale.
The organization is in need of good used books, especially young children books. There are bins in the library to drop off donations.
We need non-fiction of all types: history, crafts, sports, gardening, etc.; general fiction in paperback (contemporary and classic); and, as always, children’s books.
The Friends of the Library do sell books in the library at all times but not in the amount of books available at the annual book sale.
Membership to the Friends of the Library is open to anyone interested in supporting the Richmond Hill Public Library. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month (except June, July and August) at the library at 10 a.m. Dues are $10 for an individual membership and $20 for a family/business membership.
Please donate your used books to your local library and consider joining the Friends of the Library.
