“Report on Spring Book Sale
By: Linda Laliberte-Schmidt

From the time of our last book sale in the fall FOML volunteers have been working toward the Spring Book Sale. Organizing and sorting the many donations of our generous community. All of the donations of books and money keeps our organization together to help our local library. Whole families turned out for the fun! FOML’s Book Committee with the help of Volunteers from NAS Whiting Field supervised by Dave Castro did a lot of the heavy lifting and were able to put together a wide selection of books for every age group in our community. It was a lot of work!”  See the rest of this article in the June 2016 newsletter

Spring 2016 Book Sale was a Big Success

Report on Spring Book Sale
By: Linda Laliberte-Schmidt
From the time of our last book sale in the fall FOML volunteers have been working toward the Spring Book Sale. Organizing and sorting the many donations of our generous community. All of the donations of books and money keeps our organization together to help our local library. Whole families turned out for the fun! FOML’s Book Committee with the help of Volunteers from NAS Whiting Field supervised by Dave Castro did a lot of the heavy lifting and were able to put together a wide selection of books for every age group in our community. It was a lot of work! Thankfully, we saw many satisfied customers and we seemed to outdo sales in the past. The money earned will assist our library system with supplies, furniture, books, equipment and programs. Our heartfelt thanks go out to our community, and a fond farewell to Dave Castro. Good Luck Dave on yournew posting in San Diego, we are indebted to the volunteers from NAS Whiting Field for saving our older backs. Welcome to Dave’s replacement TJ Wever. The efforts of our own volunteers and especially our own FOML Book Committee members are greatly needed and appreciated.

Military Appreciation Month at Your Library  

May is National Military Appreciation Month.  During this important month, Americans have the opportunity to stand together to thank our military for their patriotic service in support of our country.  Join the Santa Rosa County Library System to recognize and show appreciation for the contributions of the courageous men and women who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Let our local military know how much they are appreciated!  Visit your local Santa Rosa County Library and fill out a star to thank our local service members for their service.  The stars will be displayed in each library throughout the month.
Members of the Military and their dependents can register to win a gift pack at the library during the month of May.  Show your military id when you check out items at the desk and you’ll be entered.  Drawings will be held during the first four weeks of the month.
You can learn about programs by visiting your local library or by viewing the online calendar on our website.  www.santarosa.fl.gov/libraries
