Local Artisan Holiday Fundraiser Sunday November 20th 1pm-5pm!
Community holiday sale showcasing local crafts people and artisans, is also a fundraiser for the Friends of the SOPL. A percentage of each vendors sales are donated to the Friends of the SOPL. Most importantly, our community can come together to keep hard earned dollars in our area. Meet your with neighbors too!
Check out the four Little Free Libraries around the village that are maintained by The Friends of the SOPL!
The Village Green link to an article on the Little Free libraries we keep well stocked.
As reported in the September/October 2016 Gaslight newsletter, our volunteer group is the most recent Villager of the Month! This is a great honor and it spotlights the hard work many folks have
been doing for many years to help out our local library.
The article reveals the close to $10,000 the Friends of the SOPL donates to the library annually, introduces its readers to some of our boards members and all of the various projects the Friends of the library have on-going.
