The Friends of the Hewitt Public Library will conduct a come and go membership drive on February 12th, 2016 from 10 am to noon in the library. There will be cookies and punch while signing up new members and renewing others as-well-as passing out information regarding new member benefits. We are a non-profit organization.
Membership in the Friends is very affordable, beginning at $10 per year for an individual all the way up to $1000.00 for a life membership. There is no pressure to do anything beyond paying your dues, but if you’d like to volunteer, there are a lot of opportunities available and it’s a great way to meet other people who value the library as much as you do.
There are also benefits in becoming a Friends Member. Depending on the level that you join, you will have access to exclusive previews including a tour of the new library facility, art receptions, and other pre- party events. In the past, we have hosted author luncheons and dinners, wine tastings, art exhibits, Dog Days of Summer, Book Boogie 5K Fun Run, and a book sales.
We would also like to invite everyone to go “like” our new Facebook page to stay current of library happenings and current events.
The FOHPL is raising funds for children’s furniture in the new library opening in April 2016.
There are two ways you can help besides joining the Friends Group!
One way is to participate in the Go Fund Me Account (www.gofundme.com). It is an online fundraiser to make donating easy. All contributions are tax deductible. Search for Hewitt Public Library and make your on-line contribution.
Another way to help is purchasing a piece of furniture off wish board in the library. We have a campaign set up “Help Build Our Wings to Fly”. A display is set up in the library that allows you to purchase a chair, stool, IPad stand, felt board, or a flat panel cart. Select the piece off the board and place it in our butterfly area to fill it up. Once you purchase an item your name will go on a permanent plaque to be displayed in the Children’s Area of the new library.
We look forward to seeing you at our membership drive!
