Published 4:55 pm Friday, October 14, 2011

The Polk County Public Library (PCPL) celebrates the national Friends of the Library (FOL) week Oct. 16 – 22.
“Our library system would be lost completely if not for our ‘Friends of the Library,’” said Polk County Public Library Director Cindy Nanney. “We have them to thank for our beautiful building. This dedicated group helps to sponsor many wonderful programs throughout the year and supports us through organizing and running the book sales.”
The staff has written love letters to the FOL members, which will be displayed in the front lobby.
Polk’s current FOL board members are: Sharon Zink, president; Nancy Gales, vice-president; Pat White, secretary; Mary Jean Fischer, treasurer; Catherine Benson; Libbie Johnson; Roberta Kellerman; Jeanne Mills; Pat White; and Priscilla Yeager.
The Friends of the Polk County Library also publishes a newsletter and operates a small bookstore in the lobby of the library.
To find out how to become a member of FOL, contact the library at 828-894-8721 or visit  www.polklibrary.org.
