Along with a grateful country, the Horicon Public Library would like to remember and thank all veterans for their service this coming Veterans Day, Monday, November 11th. We know full well the commitment and sacrifice it takes for anyone to pledge, not just their work but quite possibly their life for love of country.
Local veterans’ groups are great supporters of their local libraries. We have dovetailing missions, and with their generous donations, libraries have developed a broad collection of materials for all ages. We have books to help you use your VA home loan benefit, navigate the VA, transition from active duty, PTSD self-help or an entertaining thriller in a military setting.
All week we’ll have patriotic drop-in crafts for all ages. Gift your creation as a thank you to a veteran in your life in remembrance and appreciation.
National Friends of Libraries Week
The Horicon Public Library gets by with a little help from our Friends . . . actually, we get by with a lot of help from our Friends! Organized in 1987, our Friends of the Library group has given nearly $18,000 over the past 5 years to fund children’s programming, provide new furniture and creative play pieces, contribute funding for new and emerging technology, and our ever-popular educational venue passes.
October 20-26, 2019 is the 14th annual National Friends of Libraries Week, and it’s the perfect opportunity for the administration and trustees of the Horicon Public Library to give our Friends a big shout out for all they do to make a difference for us every single day.
We know the Friends are always looking for new members and volunteers. They have so much fun while making significant contributions to our community. It’s easy to join, click the “Friends” link in the menu on the left. Be sure to fill out the volunteer application while you’re there, and you’ll get a quick response.
Joining the Friends of the Library is a terrific way to make new friends and give back to our town, making its library even better.
