Make a Wreath, Meet a Friend!

42-17312182The Friends of the Cecil County Public Library are holding their Annual Meeting on Wednesday, November 13, 6:30pm at the Elkton Central Library this year and would like you to join them! Who are the Friends? The Friends of the Cecil County Public Library are a non-profit membership group of volunteer members who advocate, educate, and raise funds on behalf of the Library and the larger community.

The Friends make a difference by supporting the Board of Trustees, by raising funds for the entire library system, by advocating for public funding for our libraries, and by promoting use of the library. The Friends raise funds for Library activities and materials not ordinarily covered under the Library’s operating budget – such as new digital signage for the Elkton Central Branch.

The Annual Meeting kicks off at 6:30pm with a regular Board of Directors meeting. Anyone interested in learning how the Friends operate or in meeting the directors is welcome to attend. Friends members and the general public are also invited for a special wreath making presentation from Ann Stubbs of Sinking Springs Farm. A raffle of Sinking Springs items and refreshments will also be available. Admission is free to Friends Members and the public, so come stop by and have fun with the Friends!
