The Friends had a very lively meeting reviewing several agenda items. Bad news – good news: Bad news – We will not have a summer book sale this year due to the low number of books; Good news: Book End sales are going strong with a continuous turnover. We will also host several “pop-up” bag sales at the Book End as our donations allow. Always remember to stop at the Book End and see what new items might have been added.
We will be hosting a writing contest this fall. Look for details to come.
The Friends, along with computer support from our library, will be looking into selling items online. These items may include 1st editions and other books too valuable to sell at the Book End or through our book sales. Several other libraries across the country are using this method to help raise revenue.
On June 9th, United for Libraries will host an online seminar for fundraising ideas for libraries. Please see their website for details.
We also purchased FOL window clings to give to members and supporters so they can visibly display their support.
Our next board meeting is Monday, June 14th at 5:30pm in the Library Board Room.
We welcome your attendance and participation.
We are looking for new members who would like a more active part to join us on the board. We welcome your attendance and participation.
