Recently, members of Brockport's Mary Jane Holmes book club learned that the majority of books requested by Seymour Library patrons had to come from another Monroe County library.
This spurred the group, which is celebrating its 140th anniversary this year, into action!
The group, which also has the distinction of being one - if not thee - longest continuous book clubs in nation, reached out to another local book club - Loud Ladies Together - for help.
Over lunch at the Red Bird Café in Brockport, the two clubs joined forces and, thus far, through donations to the Foundation of the Seymour Library Inc., have purchased over fifty new books for the library.
"We really want to keep the effort rolling!" said Eileen OHara, who invites other local book clubs to join their campaign.
If interested, clubs can contact OHara at firstname.lastname@example.org or Carole Gravetter at email@example.com. To learn more about the Foundation of the Seymour Library, Inc. visit seymourlibraryweb.org/support/
