Members Marge Damm, Joan Meyers, Arlene Sypniewski, Joyce Eddy, Julie and Jan Pietrzak volunteered at the community tent. They offered passers-by free materials, including books, magazines, pamphlets, pens, Tootsie Pops for the children and book marks reminding everyone about the approaching book sale. Joan painted children’s faces during the early part of the event while Joyce and Julie read stories to youngsters during the latter half of the morning. Beautiful weather encouraged a good Market turnout and provided a great opportunity for the Friends to remind folks about our wonderful local Palos Heights Library.
The Campbell’s soup label collection cans have been removed from the Book Store. Changes in the program no longer benefit the Friends’ purposes so we NO LONGER ACCEPT CAMPBELL’S LABELS. If you have been saving labels, check with your local elementary school – many can and do use them. Thanks for all of your past support.
September 9 at 3 pm, The Friends will hold a very important business meeting in which changes to the by-laws will be considered (a draft of the proposed changes is posted in the Book Store) and plans for “Christmastime in Palos” and the election of officers will begin. We try to keep these meetings to one hour in length and we welcome your ideas and opinions, so please plan to attend this meeting.
