Thank-YouThe Board and Staff of the Romeo District Library are thankful each and every day for the hard work and dedication of the Friends of the Library! Their support and commitment to the Library is unprecedented! From speaking to the community about the importance of libraries to supporting such programs as the Summer Reading Program, Mystery Comes to Michigan, and Battle of the Books,  to various other programs and initiatives that enhance the services that the Library is able to offer; the Friends have always been there.

If you believe in the importance of libraries and the vitality of  your community, I urge you to join the Friends of the Romeo District Library today. Friends need friends too! This is a great opportunity to give back to the community by supporting reading, learning and access to information for all. Your ideas and energy would be welcome in making sure that the Friends remain strong for a new generation.

Thank you again Friends for all that they do and we look forward to working together to keep our library and our community a supportive, nurturing and creative place.
