THE Friends of the Hillcrest Library is an organisation that raises money, used predominantly to buy new books or other items as needed by the library.

It has existed for 15 years, however, it has now reached a stage where they have minimal committee members, and the chairman is retiring soon.

The friends are appealing to people who use Hillcrest Library to volunteer their services as a committee member and it is also looking for one individual who feels he or she has the ability and/or expertise to be chairman.

Secretary Hilary George said that as a committee, they meet in the library hall once a month.

“We hold book sales in the foyer of the library two or three times a year. From June 2015, we have been running a sales table in the library, which we restock with books once a week. This has been a very successful venture, which has raised us substantial funds,” she said.

“The books in our foyer sales, and the sales table are extremely reasonably priced. Books that don't sell are donated to charitable organisations.”

“To become a Friends of Hillcrest Library member costs only R30 a year,” George said “and the R30 contributes to our funds used to buy new books.”

“There are also a couple of other benefits to being a member - so please join the ‘Friends’.”

For more information, inquire at the desk in the library or phone George or 082 401 0234.
