Library Open House


Staff report



GREENVILLE – The Friends of the Greenville Public Library are hosting their annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, Dec. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“As always there will be a big table full of delicious Christmas cookies and punch and live holiday music. The kiddos can meet with Santa & Mrs. Clause and have a free photo taken. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the season and to get to know your Library,” said organizers.

At the same time a Special Used Book Sale will take place – the subject is World War II.

“The Friends have a large collection of very nice volumes on different aspects of that time in history. WWII buffs will not want to miss it!”

The Book Sale goes on as long as the Library’s open.

The Friends are a volunteer group who work for the benefit of the Library. They raise money through their book sales and membership fees to buy items that are beyond the Library budget and to sponsor special programs. This past year they sponsored the entertainment for eight Summer Reading “Family Fun Days” and four Author’s Nights.

The Friends also purchased for the Children’s Department two wireless microphones & receivers, a variety of new puppets, a roller-coaster table, and a large number of Legos.

Please visit regularly their continuous book sale in the computer room on the Library’s second floor.
