What do Friends do?
The Friends of the Campbell Library:
Friends Support Operation Paperback

The Friends of the Campbell Library will support Operation Paperback this year, sending paperback books to troops around the world from books donated to the library and book sales. Volunteers will collect books from a listing of genre and titles intended for specific address sites provided by Operation Paperback. Contact the Friends group through the library at 218-773-9121.
Operation Paperback’s vision is that all service members and their families have current and high-quality reading material throughout their time overseas. In addition to overseas locations, Operation Paperback provides books to military and veterans hospitals located within the United States, as well as USO centers at US Airport transit points.
