At the Friends of the Milton Library (FOML) meeting on January 5 the members in attendance decided to go on hiatus; however Linda will continue to do all the finances and state/IRS filings. The library staff is helping Linda update the book kiosk as needed. Maggie will continue facilitating administration of the website, Facebook, and publicity.
The Santa Rosa County maintenance department has been out to look at the book shed where we store the donated books. They think it will need some mold remediation and possibly a new roof. We will have to empty the shed totally for them to work on it. Linda is supposed to check into FOML renting a pod to store books in until the shed is good to use again. Linda is also supposed to look into getting a larger dumpster to discard damaged/unsaleable books when shed is cleared.
Hopefully the county will give us a date when they hope to do the work that FOML can arrange to clear the shed beforehand.
FOML plans to have another meeting on March 2 at 1:30 pm at the Library meeting room to discuss progress on the shed and future endeavors.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Linda is the current Treasurer, and Maggie is the current publicity chair, and webmaster of Friends of the Milton Library. The positions of President, Vice President, and Secretary are vacant due to the resignation of those members. The membership chair has been Maggie for the last 5 years, she also resigned from that position this year. If anyone wants to join the FOML or donate to the organization, just show up at the March meeting and join then, or you can send by mail. See more about that below.
