There Is No Such Thing As Too Many FriendsDecember 12th, 2012 at Wed, 12th, 2012 at 11:34 am by José
I am very fortunate to have a great group of friends. I think most of us will admit to having good friends, but only a handful of “best” friends. There is a difference, good friends will go with you to the movies, chat up with you at a gathering; however, “best” friends pick you up from the airport and look after you when you’re sick. Whatever the case, our friends serve as a support network (or crisis response depending on the situation) for those life moments that bring joy or overwhelm us, or when we simply just need someone to talk to.
Here at the Bellevue Libraries we are extremely fortunate to have a great group of Friends, they’re the Bellevue Friends of the Library (BFOL). If you have ever attended a library program at the Bellevue, Lakes Hills or Crossroads branches, chances are that it was supported by the Friends. Everything from the Summer Reading Program to the Halloween Book Giveaway, our Friends are there to support us. Friends groups are dedicated community volunteers who help public libraries manage book donations. Proceeds from book sales go right back to the library through programming, staff and collection support. Want to learn more about the BFOL? Click HERE.
