Friends of the Library Annual Meeting - June 2015

From left to right: Marie Volpe, Carole Joseph, Treasurer Jill Banaszak, Corresponding Secretary Liz Engl, President Mary Cooke, Recording Secretary Grace Kammerer, Sharon Watz, Vice-President Nancy Vizzi and Board Member Charlotte Senulis. Missing from the photo are Friends Board Members Candy Broman and Crystal Krantz.

    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.
