The Library Friends of Payson, Inc
The Library Friends of Payson,
Inc., is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide
financial and community support to the
Payson Public Library. We
believe that public libraries comprise an integral aspect of community
identity and development, and we support endeavors that encourage
literacy and free inquiry within the individual, the family, and
many of Rim Country's finest service organizations, "The Library
Friends" were established as a 'grassroots' effort to support the
Payson Public Library.
We have evolved from just providing books -- to purchasing computers
and other equipment & funding Public Library programs that would not
otherwise be covered in its Town and County budget.
PROJECTS WE SPONSOR:
We are an Annual Rim Country
Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase participant.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE:
We offer a Free Library Services
for Homebound Individuals - through our "Library Buddy Program." We
also purchase books and supplies for
Payson Public Library.
We maintain the
LFOP bookstore (a used bookstore in the
Library). Staffing is done entirely by volunteers.
On Monday, April 20 , the Library Friends of Payson are
pleased to have Dr. Fred Peters, an avid hiker and photographer,
present a three month video odyssey documenting the hazards of
raising young eaglets in the Arizona wilderness. For more than
sixty years, Dr. Peters, a retired orthodontist, has explored
Arizona's hinterlands, usually with a camera in hand. His video
includes amazing footage of a marauding bear.
We want to extend a special invitation to middle school and high
school homeschooled students.
The Library Friends of Payson presentation for the community,
which is held in the library meeting room, will start with a
short business meeting at 10:00 a.m., and the program will begin
at 10:30 a.m.
The public is invited to both the business meeting and the free
one hour program. Light refreshments will be served. If you have
any questions, please call the library at 928- 474-9260.
