Friends of the Milton Library (FOML)

Dues help support the Library Special Programs that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

We provide:

A few of the special purchases FOML made are:

  • Books
  • Audio Books

FOML also provides people who volunteer as helpers and performers for “Special Programs” such as the one that our President,  Ned France plays the Cat in the Hat in.

 

 

Networking Lunch at Nichol’s

The lunch was sponsored by Firehouse Subs – An informative program, great food and great networking.

What a great turnout! There were at least 75 attending and many stepped up for the announcement segment at the end of meeting, including myself. I brought printed promotional handouts that had a summary of what the Friends of the Milton Library does for our Milton Library on one side, the other side was a membership application. I handed out many and left a stack on the promotional table for the taking. I hope we get some new members out of this networking event.

I should of taken some pictures!

If you haven’t seen the Santa Rosan this month, check it out online, I wrote the summary about out organization that is published. I also included a picture of Ned as Cat in the Hat but they didn’t use it – darn it!

Be sure to renew your membership for 2015 if you haven’t already, and spread the word!
