The Value of a Dollar

The cost of an Individual membership to the Friends of the Maud Marks Library- $10.00

The cost of a hardback adult book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale- $1.00

The cost of a paperback children's book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale- $.25

The smile on a child's face while attending a Maud Marks Library program- PRICELESS

We've all seen the commercials on television; a dollar just doesn't buy you much nowadays.  But, did you know that buying a book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale can provide so much more?  Every month, the Friends of the Maud Marks Library take the money raise through our used book sales and give it to the library to pay for craft programs, storytimes, afterschool teen programs, summer reading programs, cultural events, and so much more.

Reminder for Prospective Volunteers

Our next volunteer orientation at the Maud Marks Branch is tomorrow (November 10) at 7pm. It’s our last volunteer orientation for 2009 and you must attend orientation before you can begin volunteering. If you haven’t turned in your application yet you can turn it in then; remember that if you’re under 18 your parent or guardian needs to sign it too.


Price of a library card = free.

Time it takes to get one =less than 10 minutes.

The joy, education, and pleasure = priceless.


Up, Up, and Away

On Monday at Teen Time we made paper airplanes using directions from some of our books as well as some handy templates online that are marked for you! In case you missed it we have a variety of paper airplane books.
