Reading Habits – The Video!
Our librarians have been doing what they can to keep spirits high since COVID emerged 18+ months ago. When Ed Sheeran released the song “Bad Habits”, it got stuck in one of our librarian’s brains…and while shelving books one morning the song lyrics morphed from Bad Habits to…READING HABITS. Our creative Calvert Librarians came up with the fun idea to make a parody music video.

The Friends of Calvert Library is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are advocates for the Calvert Library and dedicated to supporting our community public library system. We contribute to the library by offering support for equipment or programs not normally provided by public funding. We provide financial support through membership fees, donations, book sales and special events and support the library in other ways such as volunteering to help in the day-to-day operations as well as at special library events.
Membership is a great way to show your support for Calvert Library, help fund library programs, and encourage reading in our community. Your membership dues, patronage at book sales and donations support the continuation of library programs and services.
Volunteers return time and time again to help make our fund raisers successful. They help with book sale setup and take down, working at Pub Quiz and other events, and serving on the FOCL board. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, ranging in age from 14 to seniors.
Please consider making a donation to Friends. Every penny you send our way goes toward benefiting our library You’ll feel good knowing that you’re continuing to support the library we all love.
