Simcha Book Club
The library sponsors the Simcha Book Club which invites people to donate money to buy new books for the library. For a contribution of $30 for an adult book or $20 for a children's book the librarian selects and purchases a new book. She places a book plate in the new book, which names the donor and states whether the donation is in honor or in memory of a special person. The Simcha Book Club is a wonderful way to help build the library collection.
