Library Group Announces Free Books For Mother's Day


April 10, 2017

The local Friends of the Library (FOL) are offering free books for new memberships that are purchased as Mother’s Day gifts. The promotion will run between April 17 and May 13. Individuals who receive a FOL membership as a gift for Mother’s Day will also receive a coupon good for a free book at the Second Story Book Store.

“We see this as a win-win situation,” said Alice Hardy, FOL board president. “Moms win because they get a Friends membership with a bonus of a free book. FOL wins because we add to our membership ranks.

“Moms might want to select a book for their own reading pleasure or pick out a children’s book to share with their kids,” Hardy said. “We have a good selection of books for children of all ages.”

The mission of the FOL is to enhance Transylvania County Library services by underwriting programs and events at the library – such as the upcoming popular summer concert series and the ongoing Bag Lunch Arts program, along with many other family oriented programs throughout the year. The FOL also publishes an informative monthly newsletter that is included with membership.

The Second Story Book Store located in the library is open Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays – 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store offers book selections covering a wide range of topics and interests for all ages. All proceeds from the sale of books go to support continuing education programs sponsored by the FOL.

Individuals can come to the library and indicate that they are purchasing a special Friend of the Library Mother’s Day membership. A year’s membership is $15 and will include the free book coupon, as well as the monthly newsletter.
