Friends of the Troy Public Library Book Shop Re-Opening Celebration
Troy, MI: The Friends of the Troy Public Library are excited to announce the Grand Re-Opening of the Friends Book Shop in the library lower level. The Book Shop ceased operations in April due to the impending library closure, but with the passage of the millage in August the Book Shop is back in business.
The re-opening celebration will be held Thursday September 8 from 4-7pm, Friday September 9 from 10am-1pm and Sunday September 11 from 1-4pm.
During the re-opening celebration, library visitors will receive discount coupons for the Book Shop.
The Friends will also be holding a drawing to thank library supporters by giving away a NOOK e-reader. E-readers are a great new way to use the library to access the many e-books available free through TPL. Library users can stop by the Friends Shop in the lobby or the Book Shop to enter. You must be 16 years old to enter and you need not be present to win.
The Troy Public Library is a jewel in the community and the Friends have promoted and supported the library for over 53 years. FTPL has funded the highly successful Job Seekers programs, children’s summer reading, Special Needs collection and many cultural and educational programs. The Friends provide tens of thousands of volunteer hours to the library and offer a place for students gain necessary community service hours.
Membership in the Friends is a vital part of supporting the library.
