 CLOSING THE 'BOOK' AT THE MAGNOLIA HOUSE 

There were some bittersweet moments at our last book sale on July 11th.  Below lines of friends waited to purchase their half price finds while others kept a steady stream searching for treasures throughout the building. The dedicated volunteers are excited about a new location for the sale as they say goodbye to the Magnolia House which has been the home of the Friends of the Leland Library Book Sale for the last few years.  Be sure to check here often to find out the Grand Opening date for our new location!

THANK YOU, FRIENDS!
Donations continue to be great!  We receive lots of books.  Some don't sell as quickly as others, so we are always looking for needs in our community.
We are happy to report that we recently donated books to both Lincoln Elementary School and Leland Middle School.  There were four or five boxes so we are happy that each school received books for their library.

Friends, remember that your support makes this possible.  Not only do you help support the Leland Library, but from time to time we are also able to help others in our community!   Thank you for your continued support.

Thursday, March 26, 2015



Lisa Milligan, Branch Manager of the Library and Arlene White, President of the Friends of the Library attended the Magnolia Greens Breakfast Club this morning.  With approximately 25 attendees, a lot of information-sharing took place.  Lisa gave a brief history of the library and talked about library services, particularly how to obtain a library card for newcomers. Arlene gave an overview of the Friends Group, its fund-raising efforts and how those funds have been used in the library. Remarks and discussions were well received and the group went away with a better understanding of their local library and the Friends' Group that supports it.
