Library News
"You Got to Have Friends," as Bette Midler sang in the 1973 hit single. There are dozens more

songs about friends—so please choose your favorite and hum that tune!

At the Bethel Public Library, we've got our own special group of friends, and we'd like to tell you

about them. The Friends of the Bethel Public Library is a non-profit group of individuals who

work hard to support the Library both financially and through advocacy. They raise much-

needed funds with themed book sales and in their store, the Book Cellar.

Visitors to the Library can shop for bargain-basement (!) priced items in the Cellar, which is

filled with books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, and other materials that have been generously donated.

They continually add new items for all age groups; and sharp-eyed collectors will want to scout

the shelves, too. Store hours are Mondays and Wednesdays noon-7:30 pm, Saturdays 10 am-2

pm, and Sundays 1-4 pm.

The money from every purchase goes to your hometown Library, and enables the Friends to

purchase equipment and supplies needed for technology and craft classes. In addition, the

Friends sponsor programs, such as the upcoming "Poetry of the Earth" on April 28 at 2:00 pm

and "Italy: A Cultural Journey" on April 29 at 7 pm.

The Friends also advocate for the Library. During budget time, they raise their voices in support

of all the important contributions a public library makes to its community.

We sincerely appreciate the Friends of the Bethel Public Library, as well as the many patrons

who have become Library friends through their continued support. Membership to the Friends

group is open all year long, so please consider joining them. After all, you've got to have

friends! Come visit us downtown or online
