This week I’m celebrating Friends of the Library.
It’s no secret I’m a big lover and supporter and advocate of libraries- and so are Friends!
I remember being a page for the Las Vegas- Clark County Library District and the awesome, friendly, and dedicated staff and volunteers who ran our branch’s Friends of the Libary store. It was their kindness that made me seek out Friends of the Multnomah County Library when I moved to Portland. I was a volunteer at their store and Used Book Sale before currently being a Board Member.
It’s been a pleasure.

We currently held our Fall Used Book Sale and there’s just something about a roomful of readers that makes things exciting, exhilarating and electric. Despite the rain, we had dedicated people line up to get in before we opened doors each day of the sale. Some of them have been going for over a decade and it’s something they look forward to.
Here are some pics of the sale. It was pirate themed!
I would encourage you to see if your library has a Friends group and see what they’re up to!
What are you celebrating this week?
