Join the Friends of the Kirkendall Public Library and help make a difference in Ankeny today. As part of the National Friends of Libraries Week celebration, October 21-27, 2012, the Friends group is holding a membership drive under the theme “Friendraising.”
All are encouraged to be part of the “Friendraising” event in October and join the Friends of the Library. All members receive a Friends reusable mug and the knowledge that you are supporting the Kirkendall Public Library and the growth of the spirit, imagination and culture of Ankeny. Volunteer opportunities are also available.
The Friends was formally organized in January 2012. Members launched a freewill offering coffee nook at the library and formalized the opportunity to raise money through membership dues, donations and sales of reusable coffee mugs. Members run a book sale in the library with proceeds directed to library programming and volunteer to assist at the library and during library programs.
