Fundraising News

Once again, the Friends are preparing for holiday events.

I especially need imaginative, creative crafts people to help make this year's Children's Boutique the best ever. This is a wonderful opportunity to not only help the library, but to provide a special service to our youngsters. Where else can they find unique gifts for all their family members, friends, teachers, etc. for between 25 and $3.00?

Boutique Project Planning Meeting:
Wednesday, October 29
from 6:30–8 pm ~ Library Multipurpose Room

Bring your ideas (and perhaps samples) to this preliminary planning session. Give me a call for more information.

Elves’ Boutique Gift-Creation Workshops:
Monday, November 10 & Thursday, November 20 from 6–8 pm ~ Library Multipurpose Room

Many hands are needed to assemble craft gifts. No previous experience is required. Everyone is invited to come and pitch in.

And make sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, December 6 for the 4th Annual Children's Holiday Boutique from 12 noon to 4 pm.

“Entertain” This Thought

A $160 return on a $20 investment? Can't happen?

Yes it can. You'll benefit far more than that when you purchase an Entertainment book and use its coupons for phenomenal savings.

The 2004 Entertainment book contains monthly coupons for Ralph's and Bristol Farms markets and Long's Drug stores worth $180. That's just the beginning. There are hundreds of pages of coupons for restaurants, movies, sports, and other attractions. You save on car rentals, repairs, and washes. Reach for coupons for sport shoes, cleaners, or items for your home. And yes, there are even coupons when you want to satisfy that craving for Krispy Kreme donuts.

So hurry in and pick up your book now at the Friends Bookstore. While you are there, you might want to pick up a couple of extras. They make great gifts for the holidays. Books will be sold from now through the month of December. San Fernando Valley books are priced at $20 and Los Angeles books are $30. You can also special order books for other areas.

Best of all, at the same time you are saving money you are helping Platt Branch. For each book purchased, $3.00 comes back to the Friends to use for library needs. Questions or special orders? Just call.
