Friends March meeting
The Friends of the Solon Library held their monthly meeting on March 1 in the library meeting room. Plans for the remainder of the calendar year were discussed. Funding for the summer reading program was discussed and money reserved for performers, movies, prizes and refreshments. Friends will pay for the repair of two damaged upholstered chairs. The children’s area needs new straight chairs for the reading tables and the much used kitchen set could also be replaced. Pricing for these items was also discussed. Santa was reserved for a Saturday in December to correspond with the holiday sale.
Since the fall of 2010, the Friends organization has provided $5,944 for purchasing DVDs for the library as well as the DVD cleaning machine.
Through used book sales, the June city wide garage sale registrations and library garage sale and the holiday sale, the Friends support the needs of the Solon Public Library with funding not covered by city, county and state sources.
