Friends Of The Library

Friends of the Library Annual Meeting & Speaker - April 2017

    The Friends of the Library Annual Meeting will take place on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at the Grand Island Memorial Library, 1715 Bedell Road at 6:45 p.m. There will be an election of officers, followed by a presentation by Michele DeLuca. DeLuca is the auther of "Forever More: A Love Story from the Edge of Eternity". It is a mystical love story, set in Lily Dale. There is only one thing keeping Rebecca and Sebastian apart - she is living and he is dead.
   The slate of officers proposed includes Mary Cooke (president), Carole Joseph (recording secretary), Marie Volpe and Sharon Watz (board members). Refreshments will be served. All are invited.

    At their annual meeting each May, the Friends of the Library elect officers and board members for new two year terms. Terms of the Board are staggered so that half of the Board positions expire each year. Recently elected for new terms expiring in 2017 were President Mary Cooke, Recording Secretary Grace Kammerer and Board Members Carole Joseph, Marie Volpe and Sharon Watz. Carole Joseph was named Volunteer of the Year. The Friends accept used book donations anytime the Library is open and sort and sell the books to raise money for library programs and equipment. Donated books are sold in three ways. Books on the shelves to the left of the library entrance are on sale anytime the library is open. Several times a month the Friends operate the Book Sale Room at the back of the Library Meeting Room. Each April and November, a weekend Used Book Sale is held in the Meeting Room. If you'd like to help the Friends in any capacity, please contact the Library at 773-7124 or e-mail the President at maryscooke@roadrunner.com.
