Tuesday night, 6-7-11, at 7 p.m. is the next meeting of Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library. http://www.clarke.public.lib.ga.us/arls/support/athfriends.html There still are a couple of openings on the Friends Board that we would be delighted to fill if there are any A-CC residents interested. I've been on the board for a year and have been impressed with the amount of offerings Friends makes available to the community. The workload is not heavy and the activities sponsored by Friends are always fun ones.
Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library is a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of the library and helps supplement library funding shortfalls. Funds raised by Friends help the library to better serve and enrich our community by making available free information, education, entertainment, and literacy activities for library patrons. In the current economy, use of the library has heavily increased (books, periodicals, movies, activities), but library funding has not increased, so Friends activities will be more important than ever.
If you are interested in working on the friends board, please come to our meeting Tuesday to see what we do and then, if you are interested, put your name forward as a nominee.
If you can't find the time to work on the Friends Board but wish to become a member of the Friends non-profit organization, the online membership form can be downloaded from the link above or at: http://www.clarke.public.lib.ga.us/arls/support/fotl_membershipform.pdf
