Letter to the Editor: Friends of the Kearny Library may disband

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

  On May 14, the Friends of the Kearny Library will vote to close up shop or not.

  We have had a Friends committee for many years but we no longer have the members to hold office nor to do the work. Past members have aged out or moved away.

  Most of the Library events will continue but the Library will need to raise money to fund them.The Christmas residential lighting contest however will need to be taken over by someone in order to continue.

  The people of Kearny have always been very generous each year when we have our fund raiser but no one has the time for the meetings or the work.

  If the vote is to close up, the money in the bank will probably go toward the A/C for the KLAC (formerly teen center) which the Library is currently running.

  If you have any questions, check in at the Library or attend the meeting on May 14 at 1 p.m.
