Friends of the Library Events:
Through dues and donations, the Friends of the Library help supplement the Library’s programs and services. The Friends sponsor 10-12 programs each year, including a yearly Kentucky Humanities Council program. They also provide fall and spring film series featuring classic movies free of charge.
The Friends also sponsor two large book sales each year, as well as an on-going book sale. The money earned from the book sales provide the major part of funding for the various projects of the Friends of the Library. For example, in 2014 the Friends supported the “Fueling the Mind” summer reading/feeding program, Spring Break “Stay-cation” for families, a performance and program on Civil War music by Saxton’s Cornet Band, and a trip to Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, as Danville’s Cultural Ambassador for our librarian, Georgia deAraujo.
