Community Mailing


The Friends of the Library sends an annual mailing to community households and businesses asking for voluntary contributions. These contributions fund the library’s collections and typically raise more than $15,000 for the library.

FOL members, friends, and volunteers fold the solicitation letter and stuff it with a return envelope into an envelope, and a preprinted mailing label is affixed. This is a great one-day service opportunity to undertake with friends, while enjoying coffee, snacks, and loads of conversation. Volunteers are appreciated for any amount of time that their schedules permit.  Stay for at least an hour and earn a free book coupon redeemable at one of our used book sales!

The next annual community mailing will take place on Wednesday, October 23, 6-9pm, and Thursday, October 24, 9am-12pm in the library’s 1st floor conference room. Volunteers are welcome during either shift for any amount of time. Refreshments will be provided.

If you would like to volunteer to help prepare the mailing, please RSVP to friends[at]gepl[dot]org.
