Make Oct. 21-27, 2012, Friends Of Libraries Week In EG
The East Greenwich Free Libray has been a cornerstone of our community for over 100 years.
The Friends of the Library is a volunteer organization that focuses its efforts on raising money and awareness to ensure that the library has adequate resources for everyone. By donating their time and energy, they have made the library a place of learning, gathering and entertainment.
Please join The Friends in their petition to the Town Council and Chamber of Commerce to join with libraries nationally and officially declare October 21-27 as Friends of Libraries Week.
Contact Town Council President Michael Isaacs (firstname.lastname@example.org) or EG Chamber of Co mmerce director Steve Lombardi (email@example.com) to let them know you support this proclamation:
Whereas, Friends of the East Greenwich Free Library provides additional resources for programming, much needed equipment, children’s educational activities, and special events throughout the year;
Whereas, the work of the Friends highlights the fact that The East Greenwich Free Library is the cornerstone of the community, providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present;
