SIAtwater Hosts Merced County Friends of the Library Luncheon

Each month Soroptimist of Atwater encourages local organizations and small businesses to present information and their projects to our club at our monthly non-business meeting. This month we were treated to a presentation by the Merced County Friends of the Library organization. They are nonprofit group that helps to support all of the libraries in the system in Merced County.

SIAtwater Hosts Merced County Friends of the Library Luncheon

One of the services that they do is their Adopt-a-Book program. This program is a great gift giving idea for those people that have the love of books and want to share with others or for those that have everything and just want to make a donation in the name of someone else.

All of the books go into the circulation in Merced County Library system and you can designate a specific branch or even their mobile bookmobile.

We were excited to meet with the ladies of the Friends of the Library and learn about all of the programs they offer the community. This is a worthy cause and one that many members enjoy.

For more information on the adopt-a- book program and the Friends of the Library, you can check out their website and get involved as well.

If you have are a local organization or a small business in the Merced area and would be interested in speaking with our group, drop us an email via the Contact Us page above.
