Fun and fund-raising: That’s what friends are for


Cassey Kavars, left, and Faith Blaskovich show some of the items they’ve packed into totes that are nearly ready for check out at the Elkader Public Library.

Believing that a library should be more than a place to check out books, Cassey Kavars joined Friends of the Elkader Public Library several years ago, hoping to help the group expand its programming. She soon was elected president of the group, a volunteer position she’s capably managed for six or seven years.
