Friends of Carmel Valley Library host open house March 7

The Friends of the Carmel Valley Branch Library will host an Open House from noon-2 p.m. Saturday, March 7.

Council President Sherri Lightner, Library Deputy Director Bruce Johnson and others will be on hand to talk about what the Friends Group does for the library.

The Carmel Valley Friends of the Library raises money to pay for the monthly Family Music Concerts, weekly children’s programs, books, supplies and furniture for the library. You can join the Friends of the Library for as little as $10 per year or become a Lifetime Member for $250.

A number of Friends officers have stepped down recently and new members and officers are being recruited. If you have some free time and would like to help with the bookstore, book sales, membership, etc., please email Branch Manager Brenda Wegener at And if you are just curious about the Friends or the library, come to the Open House and enjoy music, food and conversation.
