— SUNBURY — The Friends of the Degenstein Community Library recently presented a check for $3,500 to head librarian Gail Broome. This brought the total donations from the group in 2012 to $20,500. The group raises money with three main projects: the annual auction, book sale, and indoor yard sale.

Since the group was organized in 1996, they have given the library $206,492. The library uses these funds to purchase items needed for preschool children to adults such as computer software, books, DVD’s, and magazines.
