Grocery discount cards
If you shop at Tom Thumb, you can request that your Reward Card be linked to the Friends through the Good Neighbor Program. All you have to do is give the cashier your Reward Card and the Friends’ Good Neighbor number (4144), and a percentage of your Reward Card savings are automatically recorded to the Friends’ account. Once your card has been linked to the Friends, just give your card to the cashier at the beginning of each transaction.

Volunteers are always needed for the annual book sale to help with sorting and preparing materials.

Book donations
The Friends always welcome new and gently used book donations. Bring your donations to any Irving Library.
