Friends of the Library

Newsletter April 2014

The Friends of the Park City Library is a non-profit, volunteer group dedicated to supporting the library. Each year the Friends of the Library raise funds that enrich library offerings and services. Some of the fund raising programs the Friends sponsor are:

  • The Friends Corner,” located in the entrance seating area, contains used books and magazines for sale. The Friends of the Library maintain this area by sorting through donations and designated library items and making them available for purchase.
  • Annual Book Sale, held over Labor Day, a fund raising opportunity for residents to purchase books, CDs and books on tape at bargain prices. Donations of used books are accepted at the library year round.
  • Annual Author Luncheon, a social event featuring a best-selling author and a great lunch.

Featured authors have included:

  • Judy Blount, author of Breaking Clean: A memoir
  • Robert Kirby, author and columnist for the Salt Lake Tribune
  • Marilyn Abiliskov, author of Men In My Country: a memoir
  • Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder 
  • Carolyn Jessup, author of Escape
  • Michael Norman, Utah author of mysteries, including On Deadly Ground
  • Rick Bragg, author of All Over but the Shoutin’
