Our wonderful Friends of the Gleason Public Library have started their annual fall fundraising drive. The Friends support the Gleason’s programming for all ages, museum passes, and other special materials.
Have you used a Museum Pass lately? Or enjoyed lectures on US History, Art, Poetry, Genealogy, or Climate Change sponsored by the Gleason Library? Have you been a part of a Community Book Read or the Mystery Book Club? Has your family participated in the Great Pumpkin Spectacle or the Gingerbread House workshop? Did they catch Pets or Moana on the big screen in front of the library? The Friends accept credit card donations online at the link below, or checks may be mailed to or dropped off at the Library.
The Friends also have some great events coming up this month:
