The Plant, Book and Art sale is a major fundraising activity for the Friends of the Banks Public Library. The Friends’ funds are used by the library to purchase bestsellers and current titles, CDs, DVDs, equipment and programs for the library throughout the year. The Friends fund a weekly Story Time for preschool children, a summer reading program for early readers through teens, and provide books for the Banks Community Auction.
