The Friends of the Douglas County Library will hold an organizational meeting Tuesday, August 21st, at 6 p.m. in the Douglas County Library to begin the process of forming a participation/support group. The focus of the meeting will be the organization of the Friends group, including what it means to be involved in a Friends of the Library group, activities to be considered, how the Friends group will represent the community to the Library in sharing needs particular to the community, as well as how Friends can help collect books, local memorabilia, and historical items for display at the Library.
The Public is invited to attend and encouraged to bring family and friends. The meeting will be hosted by the Library staff and patrons who have shown an interest in helping organize the group. The Douglas County Library is located at 6810 Selman Drive adjacent to the Douglas County Health Department.
The Dog River Library has an active Friends group that provides book collections, author reading events, and sponsored the vacation reading program for children. Due to the geographic distance between the two libraries, a second Friends group for the Douglas County Library is being created to hopefully provide fellowship and services of a similar nature. The Library staff anticipates that a third Friends group may be initiated next year for the Lithia Springs Library.
Ms. Kelly Springer is the Douglas County Branch Librarian, and she may be contacted at 770.920.7125 for further information.
