CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The Franklin County Library System next week is hosting the fifth anniversary celebration for the Grove Family Library.

Starting Monday, the libary will host a week of events that conclude Feb. 5.

The library system's 5th Anniversary — $500,000 Campaign is also kicking off Monday as part of the celebration.

The goal of the campaign is to pay off the library's remaining debt, officials said in a letter to supporters.

Mark Miller, development specialist with the county library system, said in the letter that the Grove Library has seen a major increase in visits — nearly 90,000 in 2009 — and circulation, which has reached 120,000 items per year.
