Staff & Volunteer Appreciation Week
Library Staff and volunteers were recognized during the week of March 20th by The Friends of the Englewood Charlotte Library for their outstanding service through the year. Surprises and small gifts were presented each day showing appreciation to these hard working individuals.
The “Friends” overseeing the operation of the book store within the Englewood Charlotte Library are asking our members if anyone may have empty storage space, in a building or garage located in close proximity to the library located at 3450 N. Access Rd. in Englewood. This donated space would be used to store boxes of donated books used for our semi-annual book sales. Such sales support our scholarship fund, providing two $2000.00 yearly scholarships to Lemon Bay High graduates. Please call #941-681-3779 for further information.
The Friends of the Englewood Charlotte Library are reaching out to those of you who may be packing, downsizing or spring cleaning and are looking for a home for all those gently used books taking up a lot of room. The Friends are looking to replenish the shelves in our book store and are also planning a Giant Book Sale later this year. Monies generated by such sales are applied to various library programs as well as our scholarship fund. Two scholarships are awarded to Lemon Bay High School graduates each year. Donations may be delivered to the book store located within the library in Tringali Park at 3450 N. Access Rd. in Englewood during book store hours being Mon. – Fri., 10A – 4P and Sat. 10A – 1P. All donations are tax deductible.
