Friends of Aram

News for September

Our big annual summer book sale is ‘in the books!’  This was our best sale ever!   Thank you for supporting us and Aram Library with your purchases, donations and help during the day!  Look for us next year under the big white tent on the Library’s front lawn on August 12, 2023!

As a reminder, we still have many wonderful books available on our in-house perpetual book sale shelves and carts.  Our DVD sale is still going on!  And we continue to accept donations for these areas, so please think of us when you’re looking for a new home for your gently used books, movies, games and music items.

September is the month for membership renewals.  Our annual letter will be going out soon.  This year we are asking you to respond to us through our Post Office Box 252 in Delavan.  A return envelope will be included in the mailing for your convenience.

Next month, we look forward to author and historian Frank Landi’s return on Thursday, October 20th from 1 to 3 p.m. for our Annual Meeting and Program on Delavan’s Spring Grove Cemetery.  Mark your calendars and join us!

And just in time for the holiday season, Friends will be selling finely crafted White Swan Pewter ornaments again on Saturdays in mid-November and December!

If we can answer any questions or provide additional information, please contact us through Aram Library or email us at

Happy Labor Day and best wishes to all as school gets underway again!  See you at the Walworth County Fair and at the Library!

 “By all these lovely tokens September days are here; with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.” – Helen Hunt Jackson
