Friends of the Library

South Shuswap Friends of the Library group was formed in 2002 under the umbrella of the Salmon Arm Friends of the Library group. There are 12 volunteers that help out with the book sales in Salmon Arm.  The South Shuswap Friends of the Library was originally called the Sorrento Friends of the Library.

The book sales are fundraisers for future purchases that help with extra items within the branch. We have purchased two lounge chairs from the "Friends of the Library" fund which are situated in the magazine area. In our childrens area, the Friends have purchased some very unique items such as toadstools to sit on, and a pretend firepit. The group also provides funds for special library programmes and is instrumental in funding the "Summer Reading Program" that is held July and August for children.  This Canada wide program encourages reading and literacy throughout the summer break! The amount of funds for South Shuswap Library, gained from a book sale is calculated by the number of hours South Shuswap volunteers work during that time.

Meetings are held 5 times a year on the third Monday of February, April, June, September and November - the Friends group is actively seeking new members....please contact Sherry at sherrius@telus.net or call her at 250-804-0936 for more information!!

South Shuswap and Salmon Arm Friends of the Library will be holding their next meeting SEPTEMBER 19th@ 2:00 pm at the South Shuswap Library branch in Blind Bay!   need to be filled!!

The June booksale was a huge success! Thank-you to all of our dedicated volunteers! The proceeds were as follows:

South Shuswap Branch     $657

Salmon Arm Branch    $495.48

O.R.L.'s portion     $ 413.42
