The Hastings District Libraries have a very supportive Friends of the Library (FOL) group.
Friends of the Library aim to support the Hastings District Libraries in their mission to "enrich the life of the community by providing a library service that meets people's informational, recreational and cultural needs".
What does the FOL do?
Friends of the Library organise Book Sales several times a year.
“The process of withdrawing stock is vital and requires a level of expertise,” says Paula Murdoch, District Libraries Manager, ”Ideally we need to ‘weed’ each collection annually to ensure they are up-to-date and we have room for all the new stock that our communities love to borrow.”
Selling these discarded items is one of the many ways the Friends of the Library support your libraries.
