Eighty people attended a luncheon provided by the Friends of the Library Kingwood (FOLK) on April 3 at the Kingwood Branch Library in honor of their volunteers. Many of the volunteers work in the FOLK used bookstore and online book sales center, while others work in the library itself processing new books, pulling holds, shelving returned items, mending damaged items, shredding documents and more.
Betsy Birkett, secretary of Friends of the Library Kingwood, models her I Love Reading tee-shirt that is autographed by popular authors. Shirts are available for $10 ($12 XXL) at Harris County Library branches.
The Friends of the Library Kingwood (FOLK) group continues to provide major support to purchase books and downloadable digital media for the Kingwood Library.
The Friends Group is a non-profit organization that raises money to provide support that enhances the overall quality of the library through sales of donated used books and magazines at a nominal cost in their bookstore just off the lobby of the new library. Additionally, FOLK sells used books that have a higher resale value on Amazon.com. Funds are also raised through the FOLK Fund Raising Campaign and through annual membership sales. FOLK members now receive a 15% discount on purchases in the bookstore. Family memberships are $20 for the year April 1 through March 31.
