In other library news a special Thanks! to the work of the Friends of the Library for providing so many worthwhile programs throughout the San Luis Valley.  The group is looking for new and renewing members to join up. Memberships range anywhere from $5 for individuals, $10 for families, $25 for sustaining members, $50 for super friends,  and $100 for gold members.  Stop by the library and fill out a form; All donations are tax deductible. 

Memberships along with two bake sales, and three root beer float bar sales are the primary means for raising money for the library.  The donation’s received from book sales in the library, as well as the Hogs and Hot Air Community Meal and the Holiday Bazaar Christmas tree and paintings also help raise money. 

With that money the Friends have purchased such items as new computers, computer friendly chairs, books on CD, replaced the back door to the library and purchased new books.  With a decrease in tax revenue for the library they are hoping for more contributions during 2018 to use as matching funds for future projects.  Please donate your time, talents or hard cold cash to their efforts in Saguache Today!
