---- — The Friends of the Drake Public Library met at 4 p.m. on Sept. 24 for a fast moving small agenda meeting. Ideas were discussed for promoting the Drake Public Library. A motion was presented and passed to purchase a book on antique collecting in memory of Marilyn Perkins. Memberships are up in number and the sponsorships are increasing. The Fareway cook out was very successful. The possibility of the Book Mobile is developing with positive input. The Friends of the Drake Public Library now have a mission statement on record. The next meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. All members and interested individuals may attend and help develop our Drake Library‚Äôs available materials for all ages. Remember to purchase the raffle tickets at the library or from a member of the Friends group. You could win a valuable prize.
