January 2019

Welcome back, Friends.  Time to bring the Library closer to our community by renewing your membership.  Dues remain the same as last year:  $15 for an individual membership and $20 for a family membership.  Please make your checks out to “Friends of TVML and mail your payment to:  Friends of TVML, P. O. Box 234, Trenton, MI 48183.  Better yet, visit the library and drop off your payment to the Librarian.  They’re glad to see you using the library resources!

You’ve probably heard about it, but we are excited to remind you of the Local Authors Book Faire.  Fifteen local authors, book signing, book sales and displays.

Good news from Amazon!  Purchases can include a small donation from them through their Amazon Smile program.  When making a purchase, click on Amazon Smile, enter “Friends of the Trenton Library”, and we will receive the credit!
