Nice letter!

Posted on: April 11, 2008

Hurray to Lisa for the nice letter in the MH Times about joining the Friends for National Library Week!!

Celebrate National Library Week by joining Friends of the MH Library

Dear Editor,

Next week Americans will celebrate National Library Week and the invaluable contributions that libraries, librarians and library volunteers make to our community every day.

The American Library Association reports that library use is up nationwide, continuing a decade-long trend. The Morgan Hill Library is experiencing record usage in large part due to the beautiful new facility that opened last July. Community Librarian Rosanne Macek reports that for the first six months in the new building, circulation is up 30 percent, new library cards are up 81 percent, visitors are up 24 percent, and reference questions answered are up 18 percent.

If you value your local library, why not celebrate National Library Week by joining the Friends of the Morgan Hill Library? Memberships start at $10 and help to pay for speaker’s forums, author events, summer reading programs, bestseller collections, and much more.

Even more than donating your money, you can make a valuable contribution to your local library by volunteering your time with the Friends. Whether you have computer skills to share, can take a shift at our used bookstore in the library, or want to help with special events like Puzzle Day, the Friends can use your help. Learn more about joining the Friends and our numerous volunteer opportunities by visiting the Friends of the Morgan Hill Library web site at

There’s no better way to support your local library and celebrate National Library Week than by helping your library’s best friends.

Lisa Pampuch,

Morgan Hill

President, Friends of the Morgan Hill Library
