The Friends of the Merrick Library paid to ship all the items collected by our teens during their "Any Soldiers" drive.
Items such as snacks, socks, and toiletries were collected in the Library, packed by out teens, and sent to troops serving overseas.
For the past few years, the Friends have hosted a Craft/Vendor Fair at the Library. It is our main fund-raiser, and enables us to support the library by paying for, among other things, the Library's passes to the Nassau County Children's Museum.
But we currently do not have enough active members to hold the sale next fall. We need "boots on the ground". So, if you can spare a few minutes a day to retrieve phone messages from potential vendors, or a few hours the day of the fair, or an afternoon going around town asking local business to display the fair flyer, please email the Friends at email@example.com. We simply can't do it without you!
The May meeting of the Friends of the Merrick Library will take place on Tuesday, May 14 at 4PM in the second floor conference room. All are welcome.
During the month of March the Friends will be working to increase our membership. If you are a Friend, please encourage other library users you know to join us. Applications can be found on the "Membership" page of this site, and at the circulation and children's room desks in the Library. We would love to have more active members as well, so if you are already a Friend, consider coming to our meetings, or volunteering to help at one of our events. We'd love to see you!
