Seeking Donations for a New VIDEO GAME Collection

Picture1Friends of the Library Seeking Donations for a New VIDEO GAME Collection

Free Friends of the Library Family Membership for One Year During the Month of February!

The Friends of Oscar Grady Library are asking the community to help build a new collection at the library. During the month of February, the Friends are accepting donations of new or gently used video games for Xbox, Wii, and PlayStation systems. If a game is used, the Friends ask that the game be functional. The library will begin offering this new collection to patrons in 2015. In return for a donation of at least one game, the Friends will provide a free individual or family membership to the Friends of the Oscar Grady Library. The membership is good for one year and can be renewed at the library’s circulation desk or during the annual community book sale.

Donations must be made in February during normal library operating hours in order to receive the free one-year membership.

The Friends of the Oscar Grady Library have been conducting fundraising and sponsor many activities at the library each year, including the Adult Luncheon and Summer Reading events. In addition, the Friends funded the purchase of the Legos for the Lego Club and provide other funds to the library for special giveaways. Friends also donate time to help with special events at the library.
