Celebrate Friends of the Libraries week

  • Updated

The Friends of the Napa Library will be celebrating National Friends of Libraries week from Oct. 17-23. This week commemorates the work of Friends of the Library organizations nationwide to support their local libraries. The Napa Main Library uses Friends donations to enhance programs for all age groups.

As a kickoff event, we will be hosting a free children's book giveaway this coming Sunday, Oct. 17, from 1-4 p.m. in the Library Community Meeting Room. Children can choose up to eight books for free, and teachers are welcome to take two boxes for classroom use.

"The library has always played such an important role in my life and in my family's life," said Friends President Sandy Fagan. "I truly enjoy being able to give something back - and being an active member of this group is fun."

The Friends will be included in this year's Give!Guide of Napa Valley. This year, the Give!Guide will be an online campaign running from Nov. 30 to Dec. 31. All donations will support and enhance our library programs.

The Friends hosted our first in-person book sale in September since 2019. Mark your calendar for our next sale which will be held from Saturday, Dec. 11 to Thursday, Dec. 16. On Saturday, shopping is reserved to members of the Friends of the Napa Library. Becoming a member is a great way to support the Friends and enhance our efforts on behalf of the library.
