When do the Friends meet?

The Friends of the Library meet monthly. The next regular Friends meeting is in May 2014.  New faces are always welcome.  We have more ideas than energy and can always use helping hands and hearts!

Email the Friends at FOL.Franklin {at} gmail {dot} com, or check us out on Facebook.

Who are the Friends of the Library?

The Friends of the Franklin Public Library are community members who work to promote and enhance the library and what it has to offer. We are enthusiastic supporters of the library’s services, programs, and materials. We help the library by raising funds for various programs and materials, raising community awareness and appreciation of the library, and supporting the library’s goals and services. All ages are welcome.

As a member of the Friends, you are invited to a special, Friends only Preview Sale the night before our Semi Annual Used Book Sales open to the public. Membership is also a great way to share your ideas with the library. Friends also support the library with help at various fundraisers and events.

Cribbage Tournament Results

Many thanks to everyone who participated in our 3rd Annual Hildegard Dolson Memorial Cribbage Tournament on Saturday, March 15. A dozen players began the competition and were eliminated to three winners – Tom Stillwell, Pam Baughman, and Randy Stewart. A special thank you goes to Krista Cloonan for providing the hot sandwiches for lunch. We hope to continue the annual tournament each March. If you are interested in a monthly game, please contact Debra Houser at the library.
