From Friends of the Franklin Library

From the Friends… We have two great recaps we wanted to share with the Franklin Public Library community. The first, a focus on the incredible library staff and the next a recent author event sponsored by the Friends.

APRIL News: “Thank you, have a great day.” These words are uttered countless times throughout the day by the staff at our Franklin Public Library.

I think we can all agree, the team is always gracious and there to help you find a new book, offer a recommendation or point you to where tummy time is being held. For all they do to keep our library going and provide enrichment programs to our community, we wanted to say thank you and help them start their day off right. In honor of National Library Week, the Friends of the Franklin Library celebrated the library staff with some tasty treats and a special raffle as a small token of our appreciation.

We encourage all patrons of the Franklin Public Library to take a moment the next time you’re there to share a favorite memory or give a simple thanks to those who make our library so wonderful. And to the staff, allow us to once again say: thank you for all that you do!

MAY News: On May 12, the Friends sponsored an in-person author event with award-winning author/journalist Nancy Rubin Stuart who discussed and signed copies of her newest book, Poor Richard’s Women: Deborah Read Franklin and the Other Women Behind the Founding Father.  Attendees enjoyed a lively discussion about her book and the research that allowed the story to come to life. Thank you to all who attended, we hope you walked away with a new appreciation for women like Deborah Read Franklin. The Friends of the Franklin Library are always happy to support initiatives such as this one to further enrich our community and benefit all of our Library patrons.

Friends of the Franklin Library is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the Franklin Public Library’s collections and programs. Want to learn more about becoming a Friend? Drop us a line at FoFL02038@gmail.com for more information on the Friends.
