Library Friends membership drive under way

The Library Friends of Cook County is conducting its annual membership drive this month.
County residents and others interested in supporting the mission of the Library Friends and current members are encouraged to submit a membership form to the Grand Marais Library or mail it to Library Friends of Cook County, P.O. Box 1234, Grand Marais, MN 55604. 
Current members have been mailed the annual newsletter and membership form. 
For interested persons wishing to join, the newsletter and membership form can be obtained at the Grand Marais Library.  Membership begins at $15 for an individual or $20 for a family membership. Additional levels of support are also available, in addition to opportunities to volunteer. Members
are entitled to shop at the “Members Only” night of the August used book sale which is the major fund-raising event of the Library Friends.
The Library Friends of Cook County is an all-volunteer, nonprofit service organization which supports the Grand Marais Public Library and the Cook County School libraries (Birch Grove, Great Expectations, ISD 166 and Oshki Ogimaag).  The mission of Library Friends relies on the yearly support  of members and others both financially and as volunteers.  
In addition to contributing to the Cook County libraries, monies have been designated for the Grand Marais Public Library expansion project.  Additional activities include Internet book sales, the annual used book sale and supporting special events and programs.
