As many libraries know, their friends’ group is vital in supporting library programming initiatives.

In Evanston, IL, the Friends of Evanston Public Library developed and operate a small but vibrant storefront called “the Mighty Twig”. At “The Twig”, volunteers offer resources, assistance and programming that focuses on the needs of the Evanston community

For more information about “The Twig”, check out their website.

Library Journal’s 2011 Librarian of the Year and literary tastemaking author Nancy Pearl will be appearing at the FriendShop, located on the third floor of Central Library, on Monday, December 12th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Nancy will be signing copies of her books as well as the recently released 2012 Friends of the Seattle Public Library Calendar.

Nancy is the author of Book Lust and a half-dozen other titles that provide book recommendations for every type of reader. She developed “If All of Seattle Read the Same Book,” a program that has inspired similar “One City One Book” campaigns across the country. Nancy is a frequent contributor to NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Monday’s signing provides an opportunity to meet a bone fide library legend.

While at the FriendShop pick up a copy of the 2012 Friends planner, which features Nancy on its cover, to plan next year’s reading. The shop also features a wide variety of unique gifts for book-lovers and others with discriminating tastes on your holiday shopping list. All proceeds from sales at the FriendShop support The Friends of the Seattle Public Library.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday!

The Friends of the Seattle Public Library
