FAPL invitation to relaunch library volunteering and donations

Like many commnity groups, the Friends of the Ada Public Library were inactive during the COVID pandemic, but have since regrouped and resumed activities.  

Since October 2022, the local nonprofit has contributed to the library’s Halloween party, had a book drawing during Chtistmas holidays, and contributed to the recent Chocolate Bake-off.

The next scheduled volunteer activity will be to participate in the library’s summer reading program kickoff in early June.
