“I believe in great libraries, cheap books, and hanging out with people who believe this is important too,” said Austin Gay, Friends member. Won’t you join Austin?

If you are passionate about your library and want to be part of supporting it, join the Friends. The Friends work all year long to raise funds to support the programs and services provided by the library. The Friends operate the Chandler Booktique, online sales through Amazon.com and the Annual Book Sale. A membership benefits the library and yourself. Become part of a unique group who want to assist the library in achieving its goals to offer more services and excellent programs to the community.

Since 1970, the Friends have contributed more than $1,000,000 to support your library. Purchase your membership at the Chandler Booktique.

Learn more about the organization and its benefits to you on the Friends web page. A good opportunity to join will be the Friends Annual Meeting Nov. 4 at 2:30.

Also, half-price book sales are the 15th and the last day of every month in the Chandler Booktique. You don’t even have to be a Friend to reap this benefit.
