Donations are needed by October 26th. Cricket also brought up an idea to benefit the community and local businesses that the Friends of the Library Group came up with. It is called the First Friday Festivities, it would take place on the first Friday of every month, the library would show a movie, businesses could have sales, free samples, discounts, demonstrations, open houses, each month could showcase a business, donation boxes could be put up and then donated to a different non-profit organization each month, Police Department could do a bike rodeo/safety, various others are willing to do other demonstrations and services, and possibly do a make and take project whether it is a food or craft item. For more information or if you would like to be involved contact Cricket at the Library or CL Community Club.
