The biggest fundraising event of the year for the Gurley Friends of the Library is the Gurley Library Challenge 5K Sharon C. Cissell Memorial Run. The race was on hiatus for two years due to the illness and death of Sharon Cissell, the race’s founder and director of 12 years. But it resumed on Saturday, May 9, 2015, in honor of Sharon.
Gurley FOL members also have a bookstore in the meeting room at the library. Proceeds from book sales benefit the library.
FOL meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Gurley Library, 225 Walker St. in Gurley. For more information, please contact the library at 256-776-2102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
