Collins The Vidette-Messenger VALPARAISO Libraries aren't a resource to be taken for granted and the Friends of the Porter County Public Library System know it. Members of the volunteer organization work to focus attention on and raise funds for the library system throughout the year. Twice-a-year book sales are the primary fund raiser, and are supplemented through annual membership dues.

The Friends raised $2,200 last spring from a used book sale, reports Roberta Pierce, secretary of the organization. "There's always a long line of people waiting for the sale to open," she said of the Friends preview night before the main sale. "It's amazing. I wonder when they find time to read all those books," she commented of those who leave with boxes of literary bounty. The organization also has monthly board meetings, and biannual member meetings, which usually include a guest speaker.

The Friends board of directors consists of people from throughout the county, as the organization is designed to benefit all the libraries in the county's system. Anyone wishing to become involved with the organization or to donate books for future book sales may contact any library branch in the county, Pierce added. 11 Attorney Rice has practiced law in Porter Co. for 20 years CALL 762-7711 to reserve your place at this free seminar (limited to 20) PLAIKmiG YOUR ESTATE with Clifford J.
