Friends of the Siletz Library gives big “Thank You” to Siletz Charitable Trust


Wanda Hess, Siletz Public Library
Provided by Friends of the Siletz Public Library

Thank you Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for the grant that helps pay for our liability insurance. Without this generous grant the Siletz Valley Friends of the Library would not be able to use our wonderful volunteers. These monies enable us to use our volunteers in many different areas of the library building and library grounds. We utilize our volunteers in many ways, i.e., alphabetizing the books, repairing and covering our old and new books, helping with setting up the display cases, cleaning the bathroom facilities, weeding the flower beds, power washing the sidewalks around the building. We also use volunteers to plan and prepare for events we have during the year; such as: our library birthday party and our ongoing fund raising events for the upkeep and maintenance of the library building and grounds. Thank you so much again, we greatly appreciate your help with this endeavor.
