Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library 2023 Newsletter


Dear Friends and Supporters,


As we approach the end of another remarkable year, the Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library would like to express our deepest gratitude for your unwavering patronage and support. Your commitment has been the cornerstone of our success, allowing us to continue serving the community.


Celebrating 20 Years of Community Excellence:

This year marked a significant milestone for us - our 20th year of operation! The journey has been filled with joy, growth, and community spirit. We celebrated this special occasion with a heartwarming community celebration in July, bringing together friends, families, and library enthusiasts alike.


Engaging Activities for All Ages:

Throughout the year, we hosted a variety of Take and Make activities catering to all age groups. These creative projects have not only been fun and engaging but also very popular among our patrons. From the youngest members enjoying storytime programs to community members relishing the music on the porch, each activity has added a unique touch to our community tapestry.


Supporting Early Literacy:

In line with our commitment to education and community development, the Friends have continued to support pre-school and storytime programs. These initiatives play a crucial role in nurturing young minds, laying the foundation for a lifetime of learning and curiosity. In addition, collaborating with Les Cheneaux Community Schools has introduced the library to many local students and families.


Celebrating the Heart of Our Community - Volunteers:

None of these achievements would be possible without the dedicated volunteers who selflessly contribute their time and energy. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to each volunteer who has played a role, big or small, in making our programs and events a success.


Financial Support for Essential Programs:

The Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library are proud to financially support the RIDES program. This invaluable contribution enables the library to participate in interlibrary loans, broadening the range of resources available to our community. Your support directly impacts our ability to provide diverse and enriching materials to all our patrons.

As we reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, we invite you to consider supporting the Friends of Les Cheneaux Community Library. Your contributions, whether through the Community Foundation ASK or a direct donation to our group, make a significant difference in sustaining our library's operations and community programs.
