National Friends of Libraries Week

Dear Editor,
Oct. 19-25, is the 9th annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries week. It is an opportunity to publicly thank the Friends of the Great Bend Public Library group who contribute so much of their time and energy to significantly enhance library services.
How do libraries benefit from Friends groups? They benefit by the expansion of their resources to serve the public. Friends extend a library’s capacity through dollar gifts, volunteer and program support, and through advocacy. I know that the Great Bend Public Library is a source of pride for your community. Your Friends group is a source of pride as well. I urge you to contact the library to ask how you can join and support this outstanding group.
