Thank you for supporting the Friends of the Suttons Bay Bingham District Library’s Lights, Bites and Books Winter Gala! Many thanks from the Friends of the Library to the volunteers who made the night a reality, the donors that contributed and the attendees who made it a celebration!

About the Friends
Friends of the Library groups are independent, non-profit, volunteer organizations that sponsor fundraising and other activities on behalf of their local libraries. That defines us for legal and tax purposes, but what does it really mean? Friends are local folks who support their library with their donations of time and money.  Through their generosity and willingness to lend a helping hand (think book sale!), in the past years the Friends have:

  • Funded the library’s initial large print and audio book collections
  • Purchase Ancestry Library, a family history research database
  • Offer genealogical research assistance
  • Decorate the library for the holiday season
  • Gave the library a good spring cleaning
  • Assist with Community Room renovations through funding and volunteer labor
  • Built and maintain three Little Free Libraries in the community
  • Purchased the library book return box during the entryway renovation
  • Purchased the library’s automated external defibrillator (AED)
