Your board members of the Friends of the Orion Township Library are reaching out to wish you well and provide you with a few updates during this challenging time.
Friends Annual Meeting Postponed
Each year, the April Friends board meeting is designated as our annual meeting where we prepare to close out our fiscal year and begin the new year the first of May. Because we like to make this annual meeting available to our membership, the Friends board has elected to postpone the annual meeting to a later date once the library has re-opened. We will keep you posted on the new date once we know more.
Membership Renewal Fees Waived
This time of year is also when we send out our membership renewals for the Friends of the Orion Township Library. To ease the burden that so many are facing right now, the Friends board has decided to offer free memberships for its May 1, 2020-April 30, 2021 membership period. While our membership fees aren’t costly, we know every penny counts and makes a difference in the pockets of so many of us. This offer is available to current and new members.
Current memberships will automatically be renewed for the upcoming year.

May Booksale Cancelled
The Friends board has decided to cancel our May book sale at the library. Because there are a number of unknowns at this point, including a re-open date for the library, we determined that it was in the best interest of our volunteers and patrons to hold off on our May sale. Once the library re-opens, we’ll work with the library staff, our book sorters and other volunteers to determine if there’s an opportunity to re-schedule the spring sale or if we want to focus our efforts on the fall sale which is slated for Tuesday, September 15-Saturday, September 19, 2020.
Donating Used Books & Materials
If you, like many of us, have been doing your spring cleaning and organizing, remember we accept donations of gently used books.
Take good care of yourself!
Once again, we want to thank you for your partnership in the Friends of the Orion Township Library and our aim to support our library and the community we all love.
We are sending our well wishes to you and your family.
