The Little Shop Full of Big Surprises
The Friendshop has always promoted local artists and photographers through sales of their greeting cards. Once again, we have added a new artist’s cards to our inventory. These cards are handmade and the envelopes are handmade, too! Some are the popular 3-D cards. We also have some new postcards on order. Bring your visitors in for a look so they can give the “folks back home” a view of their visit to Bend.
The Friendshop is our unique gift shop located just inside the main doors of the Downtown Branch library. Staffed by friendly volunteers, the Friendshop offers a unique shopping experience for the library visitors: greeting cards, stationery, bibelots, bookmarks, reading glasses, quick snacks, and our very popular “everlasting book sale.” Our gently used books include adult and children’s books, videos, cassettes, and CDs.
We need you! The Friendshop is entirely run by volunteers. It is a fun way to meet new people while supporting the library with just a twice-monthly obligation. If you are interested in supporting the library by volunteering in the Friendshop, please visit our Contact Us page, and a volunteer will call you within a few days.
We also maintain a self-service bookcase at the East Bend branch. Each/any item is $1.00
All profits from the Friendshop support the Friends of the Bend Libraries budget.
