Friends of the Polk County Public Library to hold annual meeting

The Friends of the Polk County Public Library members will hold their annual meeting on Jan. 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Main Library.

 

After light refreshments, there will be installation of new officers and a short business meeting. A musical program will follow featuring Lance Smith, associate pastor for the Congregational Church of Tryon, and Mike Weathers, playing banjo and guitar, and telling stories – back by popular demand! All Polk County citizens are welcome to attend. Those wishing to join the Friends of the Library may do so at the meeting.

Community citizens are invited to join FOL for reasonable annual membership dues of $10 for single membership, $15 for family membership and $100 for a lifetime membership. Come and join a vibrant organization that holds book sales, supports library programs and contributes significantly to our local libraries in Columbus and Saluda in various ways.
