An unheralded group of volunteers makes a difference that most people may not realize when it comes to your local library. The Friends of the Door County Library is a resource that may fly under the radar but by no means overlooked in their impact in lending a helping hand to librarians and library programs. Beth Lokken, the youth services librarian, says the Friends of the Door County Library gives the opportunity for better outreach in the community.
This summer the Friends of the Door County Library helped to fund and supply special books to area school districts for children that are struggling with reading. Once a month children are given bags of books this summer chosen by them prior to school being let out earlier this summer, according to Lokken.
