Friends of the Canton Public Library Make $10,000 Donation

CANTON, MI — Friends of the Canton Public Library treasurer Larry Hoelscher had a big smile and a big check for Canton Public Library trustee Michael Siegrist and library director Eva Davis. He and outgoing Friends president Peg Britz presented a check for $10,000, earmarked for the library’s endowment fund, during their annual membership meeting on Wednesday.

The donation is the result of book sales and fundraising efforts by the Friends group, who have contributed more than $64,000 to the library in the past year. The Friends sponsor programs and events at the library such as Connect Your Summer, and purchase materials for the Michigan History, International Language and other collections.

Book aficionados and bargain hunters alike should mark Tuesday on their calendars.

Friends of Canton Public Library will start hosting its 11th annual Big Used Book Sale on that day during regular library hours. The sale continues through the end of the month.

"This is the usually the great big sale in May," said Marcia Barker, Friends and Volunteer Coordinator for Canton Public Library, "but with the new construction going on, the Meeting Room (where the sale is held) will not be available in May."
