Happy New Year from Friends of WFB Public Library!

 
Hello Friends of the WFB Public Library and Happy New Year to you all!  We are still working hard to support our library and in spite of a very strange 2020, we are celebrating some successes including gifting two $500 school scholarships, sponsoring the writing contest, hosting two book donation days, and drastically increasing our eBay sales, thanks to our awesome volunteers.  With monies raised we were able to designate $40,250 to the Library in 2020. The funds were used for programs, projects and staff support, although not all of the designated funds were spent because of the pandemic.
You can purchase from our eBay account HERE
A recently formed ad hoc committee has been working hard to find innovative ways to continue to contribute to the library, especially since we haven't been able to host our usual book sales. Luckily our eBay sales have been able to help us somewhat control our increasing inventory of books while generating much-needed revenue at the same time! We still have a plethora of books however so if you know of any literacy groups, daycares, and/or shelters that are in need, please let us know please let us know at Friendswfblibrary@gmail.com.

As Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more than you learn, the more places you'll go!
