The Friends' Book Nook is out of commission for a while but we would still welcome your support.  If you have donations we will pick them up or arrange a place to drop them off.  The Friends will continue their work from behind the scenes until a new location is ready for services.  In the meantime do not forget us!  Money can be sent to our post Office Box:  P.O.Box 366334 BS, FL 34136
 
We will send our Friends eblasts with the latest info.
 
Many Thanks for your continued support.

WELCOME FRIENDS
The Friends of the Bonita Springs Public Library support the programming, infrastructure, educational opportunities and children's programs for your local library. 
 
The Friends raise funds to provide programs, capital improvements, (i.e. we funded children's speakers for the summer programs, the tv behind the circulation desk, reading festival and the meeting room projection system.)
 
The Friends have committed $200,000 in funds to support the building of the NEW LIBRARY.  Look for updates when available.  We look forward to the grand opening in the Spring of 2019.  We will have our own Friends Book Store near the entrance.

WHAT'S NEW?
On Saturday November 18th, two board members represented the Friends of Bonita Springs Library at BONITA ISLES COMMUNITY DAY.  We were able to spread the word about our Upcoming December Book Fair, Author Luncheons, and semi-yearly book sales.  Thanks to Bonita Isles for hosting the day and inviting us to join. We look forward to attending this type of event at other communities in the future!

HOW IS THE BOOK FAIR MONEY USED?
Donated proceeds from the Barnes and Noble Book Fair will go to the Lee County Library’s 2018 Summer Reading Program, an annual event which takes place at each Lee County Library branch and is open to all ages, from pre-school to older teens.  Different activities take place at each branch, all with the goal of encouraging kids to develop and enjoy reading habits which can take them to places limited only by their imaginations.
 
The Friends goal is to provide 10,000 kids with 10,000 books and raise $10,000. For further information, contact your local Friends of the Library group.
