CP Friends of the Library Says clean for a cause

At the Feb. 10 Love at the Library valentine concert by The Laid Back Band, Friends of the Library offered party favors of romance novels, chocolates and Library hours bookmarks. Friends of the Center Point Library are thinking of spring cleaning—not theirs, yours.Friends is planning the annual used book sale and realizing that, although we may not be over covid, we’re over the “covid cleaning” compulsion. That means fewer used books donated to the Library which means fewer books for Friends to sell which means less Friends funds for Library programs and projects.
