Friends of the Library T-shirts will be available this summer, for regular patrons of the library—and shouldn’t we all be—and especially for the participants in the popular summer programs.  The theme for these programs will be : “FIZZ ** BOOM  **READ” !!!  Sounds like a science focus.  Come see.  Check them out.

There are still Friends cookbooks available; they make great gifts and remembrances for family members and cooks of all sorts.  The May garden-themed raffle is winding down (You can still get in on the chances) but a new one for October will be organized around fall reading.  And, just in case you’ve missed it, there is a continuous book sale going on at the library so no one has to wait all year for the Big Book Sale.  Bargains galore!

The Friends of the Garrettsville Library (PCDL) will have their next regular meeting on August 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the library.   Good cause…short meetings…what’s not to like?
