Thank You VOLUNTEERS: September 9, Special Event

Volunteers make the world go round; without them, the planet would come to an abrupt halt.  Joining the SCFOL merry-go-round during the 2016-17 fiscal year were 65, fun, dedicated, interesting, book loving neighbors who volunteered over 4800 hours to organize and sell books for our monthly and Amazon used book sales; keep chapter, membership, volunteer, and financial records; schedule art shows, speakers and authors; create our website, newsletters and newspaper articles; organize special events such as the annual writing contest; keep pressure on officials to build us a new Branch Library; and stepped up and answered the call, “Who will?” We thank all of you.  Won’t YOU join us?  Make new friends while contributing to literacy and the maintenance of our San Diego Library System. Annually, the Friends of the San Diego Public Library show their appreciation to all of our City’s Friends Volunteers and Members at their annual Friends of the San Diego Public Library meeting.  Saturday, September 9 at 9:30 a.m., all FSDPL and Friends’volunteers (even non-members) are invited to attend the annual FSDPL meeting to be held at the Central Library and be recognized for their service. Special recognition will be given to outstanding Friends’ volunteers from each Chapter.  SCFOL’s stand-outs for 2016-17 are Ruth Coleman, Jerry Hotz, and Anne Justice. The agenda includes a summary of the year’s Friends’ activities and election of FSDPL officers. The financial status of the library system is also reviewed.  Funds generated by the FSDPL Chapters and the Library Foundation, are annually matched by the City of San Diego up to one million dollars.  These Funds are the financial source for the Branches to purchase materials (books), equipment, and programs.

On Wednesday, October 18, following the monthly 4 p.m. SCFOL Board meeting, there will be a “Thank-you-SCFOL-Volunteer Get-Together” in the Winer Family Community Room and Art Gallery.  We invite our loyal volunteers to join in the food and fun. Please RSVP to Lee Ottman, Volunteer Chair.
