    • Average number attending meetings: 8-11
    • Frequency of book sales: Quarterly
    • Where books are stored:  Off site, a room at Upper Dauphin Human Services.

    • Other regular & special Friends activities: Monthly meetings; 2 or 3 adult craft programs a year; Annual Ticket Raffle—their major fundraiser; provide refreshments and support for the Elizabethville Library Art Series; sponsor Author on the Road series with local middle schools (Halifax and Upper Dauphin) to provide an author visit to the schools; purchase refreshments, craft materials, and help with juvenile programs as requested; collect Campbell's Labels for Education; sell Friends canvas bags and Elizabethville Library replicas (Hometown Collectable).
    • Books are dropped off at the library, moved to a table in the meeting room and the Friends move the books to their storage facility at least once a month, weather permitting, or if the manager tells them there are too many down there.  The storage facility is across the street from the library. 
    • The Friends have decided to take advantage of the system advertising a specific pick-up time for donations.  It will be from 4:30 -6:30 PM on the day of their regular monthly meeting.  Pick up will be the last Tuesday of each month from 4:30 -6:30.
