On this day, the library’s 80th anniversary, “it is most appropriate that the Friends honor their founder,” said Friends Chair Sylvia Luber. 

“The Thursday Morning Club has contributed so much,” she said, “not only to the library, but also to Madison and the surrounding area. It is a privilege to recognize their work.”
