The Katie Flowers Endowment, created and named for one of the Forest Lodge Library’s long-term librarians, is a formal association with its own legal establishment and bylaws. Its membership consists of individuals from current and past Library Boards and library staff and community members who unite to plan and execute, in conjunction with library goals and needs, programs and events to benefit the library. The Katie Flowers Endowment is considered to be the fund-raising arm of the Forest Lodge Library, and, as such, is managing the capital campaign for the library expansion project.
The Board of the Katie Flowers Endowment is the Forest Lodge Library Board of Trustees with the addition of the Library Director and a few community members. The Katie Flowers Endowment always serves at the pleasure of the Library Board which is the only body with legal authority to set policy for the Forest Lodge Library
The Katie Flowers Endowment manages the booksales in the library-adjacent Book House on Saturdays and other designated days during summer months between Labor Day and Cable’s Annual Fall Festival, generally scheduled for the final weekend of September. Chock full of books deselected from the Forest Lodge Library or donated by area residents, there are countless book bargains to be had at The Book House!
