Dear Editor,

The Friends of the Orion Township Library held a fantastic successful book sale in September.   Thank you to all the workers, customers, library staff, donators and the Baldwin Road Kroger Store, for we realized over $7,000.

These monies will be used to fund many programs for the next year.  A few of those programs are the 2011-2012 Battle of the Books;  second Sunday concerts;  writing workshops;  job seekers workshops;  summer reading programs for all ages and various children’s programs.

Helping with these programs is crucial because funding of the library through state revenue sharing and local property taxes has been declining. We  (Friends) enjoy volunteering to help make these programs available at your library.  

We plan a January 2012 book sale beginning Tuesday, January 17 (Friends Preview) through Saturday, January 21, Bag Day, 2012.  Mark your calendars. The library accepts donations year round.    

We welcome any volunteers, from teenagers to mature persons.  Every volunteer enjoys working together and you are welcome to join us.  If interested please contact the library at 248-693-3000 and ask for Friends(ext 350).  Thank you Community for our Success!
