What’s Happening at Mt. Pleasant Library 

October – November 2018

It’s that time of year again to renew your Friends Membership. The Friends have had several very successful fundraisers this past year thanks to all our patrons and the Mt. Pleasant community. We have been able to fund a summer reading entertainer, a membership pass to Roger Williams Zoo, large print and audio books, non-fiction DVDs, an annual Jazz Night and a new carpet for our basement community room that is used on a regular basis. Membership forms are attached at the bottom of this newsletter as well as in the library on the ongoing book sale table.

October 15th – December 15th   – The Friends of Mt. Pleasant Library will be selling Sweenor’s Chocolate bars at various events during this period. These delicious candy bars come in 5 varieties: milk chocolate with caramel, almond, plain, peanut butter, and dark chocolate bars. Money from the sales will go to help support programs at our library. We hope you can help us with the sale of the candy. You can sell bars to family or bring them to work to sell. For more information, please contact Audrey, president of the Friends group, via the library circulation desk (401-272-0106). She will make arrangements to deliver your candy bar package. Our goal is 180 bars. They make great gifts, for Thanksgiving, various holidays, and as easy stocking stuffers!!
