Library Friends Group Meet-Up

Date: Friday, August 02, 2019
Time: 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
Place: East Greenbush Community Library

The Friends of Libraries Section of NYLA invites representatives of Friends of the Library groups, library staff, and trustees to talk shop with its Executive Board members.

The meet-up will offer a chance for representatives of local Friends of Libraries that support public, academic, school, and special libraries to get together and discuss topics of interest, such as fund-raising ideas, book sales, advocacy, membership, energizing volunteers, and programs and services that the Friends offer to their community.

FLS Board members will serve as mentors and moderators for this informal discussion, sharing advice from their experience with Friends organizations from all across New York State. Any pearls of wisdom gathered will be shared in the FLS quarterly newsletter, Friends News and Notes. This will be a great opportunity for Friends from your library to meet with other Friends, exchange ideas, and make new contacts, all within a short distance from your home! Groups may wish to bring copies of membership brochures, program fliers, promotional pieces for their bookstore or book sales, and newsletters to share.

There is no charge to attend. Advanced registration is required; no walk-ins, please. Please respond to Terry Mulee ( by Wednesday, July 24 with the following information: names of those attending, Friends group/library affiliation, position (e.g., Friends officer, trustee, committee chair), and e-mail addresses for all who plan to participate. Let us know what discussion topics are of interest to you.
