The Almond 20th Century Library Club’s mission is to encourage life‐long learning, to provide social opportunities within the community, and to support and maintain the Almond Public Library.
In keeping with this mission statement, the Club has social meetings with educational speakers or activities in September, October, March and April. Business meetings are held in November, April, and August. In May, we have a dinner at a local restaurant.
Meetings are usually held at the library, unless otherwise stated.
The Club has some traditional fundraisers to support our library and engage with the community. These are a sausage stand at Community Day in September and an Election Day soup lunch with other events, like our quilt auction, basket auction, bake sale, jewelry sale, plant sale, etc. in November. Each year members of our club make a quilt for us to raffle off on Election Day. Other fundraisers may occur, as members desire or projects present themselves.
Our members often volunteer during our annual Summer Reading Program by providing snacks, registering participants, help with crafts or other activities, provide snacks or serve snacks. The Summer Reading Program could not function without these amazing helpers. Volunteers support the library programs.
Our year runs from September to August. Membership is open to everyone at anytime. Our five-dollar dues are collected at the time of joining. We put our annual membership list together after our October meeting.
Featured speaker at the November Twentieth Century Club meeting will be local poet Anon A. Mouse, of Alfred Sun fame.
