Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library
The Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library has provided money to pay the operating costs of the Buckeye Lake Library through a variety of fund-raisers designed to integrate our library into the lives of the community and to raise money to support the library. We have sponsored an annual 5K Walk, sold roast beef sandwiches at the Millersport Sweet Corn Festival, hosted several Taste of Buckeye Lake nights at the library, and encouraged people in the community to become a Friend of the Library through an annual contribution. Since opening its doors in 2005, the Buckeye Lake Library has experienced growth on a steady basis. In fact, we outgrew the original building and moved into a new 3,000 square foot space in 2011.
To further expand our growth, we are raising money to create an Outdoor Learning Center complete with a beautiful screened gazebo and lots of colorful outdoor furniture. The Center will be the site for lots of library events including story time for children, book reading groups for adults and other library activities.
