The Petworth chapter of the Friends of the Library had it’s second meeting this past Monday night. Among the things discussed were ways to raise money, secure members and resources, and work with the libraries wish list and needs. The meeting had a nice turnout, with 10+ people all full of ideas and ready to help out where needed.
The library is such a cornerstone of the community, always busy with patrons both young and old, so this will be a very important venture for us all! The next meeting will be Monday, March
930th at 6:30 at the library. We will be electing officers (Pres, VP, Sec/Treasurer), working on publicity and getting word out to the community, and a few initial fund raisers. We will have forms available there for any of you to become members of the group, or you can email me directly ([email protected]) for the word document/pdf version.
We look forward to a big group so mark your calendars and come support your local library :)
