THANK YOU, NIPOMO LIONS!
The Nipomo Lions presented the Friends with a generous $500.00 check in May 2022. Diane Jankowski, a member of the Lions Club Charity Committee, noted that the group had been unable to fundraise the past two years but this year hosted two successful golf tournaments to raise funds for local causes.
"We have donated in the past to the Friends and thought it would be good to go back and donate again," she said. "We like to keep our donations local and keep the money in the community."
MAY 2022 BOOK SALE SUCCESS
The unseasonably warm spring day didn't deter determined bibliophiles and bargain hunters from our book sale May 14, which netted $940.00, reports Treasurer Bill Palmer.
The quarterly sale was held outdoors and featured a great selection of books, other media, and puzzles. All Friends members received two tickets for free fiction, nonfiction, or paperbacks. New to the sale was a special table of collectible books that in the past would have been sold on Amazon.
FRIENDS MEMBER WINS OUR 2022 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE GIFT BASKET
Barbara C., the winner of the gift basket drawing for our annual membership drive in February, was delighted to receive her prize—a beautiful basket and many other gifts and goodies such as wine, a candle, an “artichoke teapot,” napkins, assorted teas, and books. We asked Barbara to share why she belongs to the Friends. “I love the Nipomo Branch of the SLO Library,” she said. “Nice staff, fun silent auction, always available parking and, of course, the used book sales. And I’m even rewarded for my membership renewal.” Thank you, Barbara and all the other Friends members who joined or renewed this year.
