2019 Friends of the EPL Membership Drive is ON!



Envision the New EPL! – The Membership Drive Is On!
Become a friend TODAY! – Help us reach our goal!

The Friends of Ecorse Public Library kicks off their 2019 “Envision the New EPL Membership Drive” on February 1 – October 31, 2019 in conjunction with National Friends the Library Week and beyond!  Put us on your Christmas List!  To reach our goal of 50 new members, the Friends will be asking the community to show some library love.
Ecorse residents are known for enthusiastically supporting their community. This membership drive is a great opportunity for community members to go one step further and either become a member for the first time or renew a membership that was forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
An annual Friends membership is a great value considering the perks members receive in return. The Friends use those membership dollars to support the library by funding the purchase of books, media, and supplies and by sponsoring popular library programs, including youth and adult reading challenges and other events.
