Friends of Howland Public Library is grateful for your past support of this important community space in Beacon. I am writing to invite you become a Friend or to renew your membership.
We are involved in many exciting projects at the library and as Friends, supporting the library in its activities. As you know, the library budget, like all public budgets at this time, is very tight, and it is thanks to the fundraising of Friends that some of the new equipment has been purchased. It is also thanks to Friends (and other library supporters) that our outstanding children’s and teen programs have been consistently funded.
We hope you will also attend the Friends’ Annual Membership Meeting to be held on Thursday, October 11th at 4 PM in the HPL Community Room. I have agreed to continue as President of the Friends Board, Elsa Franco will continue as Vice-President, and Marion Imperatore will continue in her position as Treasurer. Marcia Frahman will be nominated for the post of Vice-President for Beacon Reads Bookstore. We invite nominations for the position of Secretary.
At this meeting, we will also begin planning our Fabulous February Fundraiser for Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 18, 2013 from 3-5 PM at the library.
Thank you in advance for continuing to support our public library through membership in Friends of Howland Public Library. We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Membership Meeting on October 11th.
