A Holiday Message from Friends of the Edison Public Library
December 24, 2011
The Friends of the Edison Public Library would like to express our thanks for your support in 2011. You have volunteered, donated books and shopped at our annual book sale in November and volunteered at or attended our first extremely successful spelling bee last April. You have attended our free programs about New Year’s resolutions, handwriting analysis, belly dancing, the art of flamenco, and a book signing with author Lynne Klemens. You have supported our efforts by being valued members of the Friends of the Library. We give you our heartfelt appreciation for your participation in these challenging times.
For 2012 we have already planned programs on decorated silk scarf making led by Nancy Leary (February), rose gardening with Chris Rose (May) and our annual meeting with a presentation by Rick Busciglio (October). Our next spelling bee is Saturday, March 31st, and annual book sale November 3rd and 4th.
Our membership drive also began this month. For those of you who are Friends members, we thank you again for your support. We would appreciate your membership renewal for 2012. For those who are not already members, please consider joining. You can find a membership application form at any Edison Library branch, on the Friends’ pages in every copy of “The Edison Library Letter,” or on the Membership page on our website.
Another way to help us is by volunteering for our spelling bee in March. We have positions available for registration, ticket takers, and classroom pronouncers, scorers and timekeepers. If you can volunteer, please contact our President, Graham Gudgin, by Friday, January 28, 2012 at email@example.com. The Edison Public Library and the Friends appreciate your assistance.
Finally, our board would like to wish all of you a joyful holiday season. May you all have a healthy and happy 2012.
Friends of the Edison Library Board Officers—Graham, Becky, Chris and Pam
