What Does It Mean To Be an ELF?
It means you are a friend of the Edwardsville Library. It cost $5 to join for a year. You can be as active as you want to be. The ELFs provide some programs throughout the year that are open to the public. Many ELF members are also Carnegies's volunteers. They have 2 hour shifts working at the bookstore/cafe. The ELFs are directed by a volunteer board of eight people. The biggst ELF fund raiser is running a concession stand for the Thursday night band concert in the park. Monies from memberships, sales in Carnegie's and the band concert help the ELF fund projects for the library. Most recently, they bought the benches in the rotunda and are helping fund the youth and adult summer reading programs. It's fun and easy to be an ELF. Come join us!
