2016 Friends of Centreville Library Annual Report

The 2016 FOCL Annual Report has been posted for information.  Please take a few minutes to read how the Friends have supported the library and community with the proceeds from semi-annual book sales, on-going book sales, and on-line book sales. These sales are possible because of the generous book donations from patrons and the commitment of FOCL volunteers.

To view the Annual Report please look on the right side of  this blog, halfway down the page, under "PAGES." Click on Annual Report to open.

Happy Holidays from your Friends at the Centreville Library! We got caught up in the spirit of the season by sponsoring a "fantasy house" decorating event for young patrons of the library.  For the second year, Sylvia Hall was the inspiration and organizer of this very successful happening.  She was tireless in making cardboard houses and gathering materials for decorating. Plus she made gallons of fluffy frosting to cover those houses! Whew!! Thanks to her (and her assistants) some 20 plus children had a fun time decorating many beautiful houses.  It was a joy seeing their smiles and watching their creativity.  We hope they enjoyed it as much as we did.  HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.!

Volunteer Opportunities

The Friends are looking for motivated, committed people to join our Tuesday working group that sorts and prices donated books.  If you have a few hours a week to spare, I can give you three good reasons to volunteer:

1.  It's Fun!!
2.  Community Involvement
3.  Meet your neighbors.

No experience is necessary.  If you are interested, drop by the Centreville library and leave your name and phone number.   You will be contacted by a Friend with details and rewards of being a volunteer.  Don't wait too long--we're waiting to hear from you!
