Support Valley Library bond

 

Friends of the Spokane Valley Library was established in 2005. So began our popular biannual book sale. Books are donated by the community. These books are sorted and boxed every day by volunteers belonging to Friends of the Spokane Valley Library. The day prior to the sale, Mormon Church elders carry the boxes to the room used for this event (thank you elders!). Volunteers take books out of the boxes and arrange them on tables. Books are priced at 10, 25 and 50 cents. Since the Friends group was established, we have been able to give approximately $20,000 to the Spokane Valley Library for unbudgeted items.

Our community can be very proud of the $4,000 we have been able to give toward advertising for the upcoming library bond issue. It is time for a new library in our city. We hope voters will feel their additional property tax will enable the whole family to be welcomed at Balfour Park, Conklin Road and an updated Argonne library.
