A Note from the Friends of the Library

The Friends of Wells Public Library held its annual book sale this past weekend. It was a success  thanks to all the volunteers and the support from the community at large. The money we raise from this event and the craft fair on Columbus Day weekend help pay for programming at the library.  So, thank you for donating books, for volunteering, for buying books and for participating in the library's many programs. –Gene Parr, Friends of the Library Treasurer and Book Fair Co-Coordinator
