"It's all about supporting our library"

 The Friends Lobby Book Shop and the Gift Shop are now offering gift certificates!  These may be purchased at the library circulation desk in any amount. During December, gift certificates of $25.00 or more will receive a special bonus of a free $3.00 book.

The 2021 Friends of the Longmont Library had a very successful Book sale this past weekend.   Because of this sale, our increase in money will allow us to continue supporting our seriously underfunded library.

We could not have accomplished this without the community’s book donations and purchases.  Thank you to the cadre of volunteers who made everything flow smoothly; the folks at the East library entrance taking donations on Thursdays; the box gatherers; the sorters responsible for categorizing books; those who helped set up the sale by moving palettes of books; setting up tables; the stockers putting boxes in the correct genre locations; our cashiers; “floaters” who greeted buyers and kept the books in order; everyone that helped take down and repack the books after the sale.  Gratitude as well to the staff of the library for always being friendly and helpful.  

Thank you as well to Stephanie B. ( for her graphic designs! Grateful  to Budget Home Supply ( for donating tarps and tape.

We are grateful to the enthusiastic readers of Longmont who bought books, joined or renewed their Friends membership and made donations.

Our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful Longmont community.
