The Friends of the Gladstone Library were very pleased to be able to donate $10,000 to the Gladstone School and Public Library at the annual Candlelight Dinner held April 27. The Friends expressed appreciation to local businesses and citizens for their contributions again this year. According to Friends member, Cindy Sjoquist, the support of the community makes it possible for the Friends to continue to help supplement the library's services to the children and the communities the GSPL serves. On hand for the presentation were: from left, librarian Karen DeMay, Friends president Judy Jeanblanc, library director Lori Wells, and librarian Kari Fassbender. Arlene McFarlane won the handmade quilt that was raffled off at the dinner.
