Dear Editor, October 16-22, 2022, is the annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries week making it a good time to publicly thank the Friends of the Three Oaks Library.

This dedicated group is led by their officers – Sharon Phillips, president; Debbie Weber, Vice-President; Barbara Doepker, treasurer.

The Friends of Three Oaks Library are passionate about assisting the library fulfill its mission “to expand the educational horizons for the children and enhance library services in all formats to meet the needs of the entire community.” They are dedicated to promoting the growth and development of library services while working closely with both the elected Library Board of Trustees and Library Director. I deeply appreciate their dedication and all their efforts.

People frequently ask how they can support the library. I encourage everyone to consider joining the Friends at their next meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 6:00 p.m. at the library. We will have a very brief business meeting and then share appetizers as we decorate the library for the holidays. This is always a fun evening and new faces will be welcomed with a warm smile. If you are unable to participate on November 15, you may still join the Friends for $15 per year. Registrations are available at the library check out desk or at the library’s website: under the Friends of the Library tab.

I know that the Three Oaks Township Public Library is a source of pride for our community. Our Friends group is a source of pride as well. Thank you, Friends of Three Oaks Library.
