PREZ SEZ: Joan Hayes, 2019- Year in Review
I thank all of you who supported SCFOL and me during 2019. I especially thank all of those who serve on SCFOL’s Board of Directors and hold Committee Chair positions. All are continuing to serve in 2020.
We welcome in 2020, and thank those who shop at our 2019 Monthly Used Book Sales. The Book Sale revenue is used to purchase programs, and update our Branch’s materials and equipment. SCFOL donated $20,000 to the SDPL Matching Fund in 2019. We make additional investments to our Branch throughout the year as needed.
Our SCFOL Membership continues to grow. We ended 2019 with 173 Annual Members and 120 Life Members. Welcome to our three new Life Members: Ava, Matthew, and Elsie Schonfeld. Please consider joining the Friends of the Library…the cost is minimal and the show of community support is important. Plus……you can purchase hard-back-fiction books for only $1 at the Members Only Friday Pre-sales.
We also encourage you to become a SCFOL volunteer. In 2019, over 55 SCFOL Volunteers donated 4594 hours to the San Carlos Branch Library. Find out what the Friends do by joining us at the library during a SCFOL Board meeting held the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Winer Family Community Room & Art Gallery, 4-5:30 p.m. (There are cookies too!)
We always look forward to seeing you at our SCFOL sponsored adult and youth programs, and of course, anytime around the San Carlos Branch Library.
