Gently used book donations are accepted all year long at the library in the bins against the wall by the Twice-Told Tales shelves in the lobby.
The Friends are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that started in 1985 “to promote public support of the Orion Township Public Library and the library in the community, to promote reading, literacy and lifelong learning, and to maintain an association of persons interested in the library,” the Friends of the Library said in a media release.
Friends act in cooperation with the library board and staff, serving as a liaison between the community and library.
All money raised by the Friends, except for minimal administrative costs such as postage and printing, is donated directly to the library in the way of program funding, material purchases and monetary contributions. – J.N.
