Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey

Have you ever watched birds care for their nestlings? I’ve been enthralled by the drama from an online live-stream bald eagle nest camera. So far, two eggs have hatched, and the nestlings are growing fast. The parent eagles are constantly attentive, bringing fish and critters, and providing nourishment bit by bit.

And that’s what we Friends do!! We nourish our community
bit by bit. We provide and help to fund literacy and other
educational programs for our residents, and we continue to
add enhancements to our beautiful library so it can better serve our community. This year’s Summer Reading Program is amazing!

So if you are an FOL member, please consider renewing your membership and staying involved in the nourishment process! If your membership has lapsed, please consider returning to the nest. Your financial support, or your contribution of time or expertise will be well put toward serving our mission of “enhancing library services and encouraging reading and literacy; striving to preserve past heritage while promoting new cultural endeavors for the community.”

The July 1, 2015-June 30, 2016 Membership form can be found on the FIND page of this newsletter, or near the library entrance at the FOL Book Bonanza.

I hope to see you May 19 at our program about The Augustine Literacy Project and the business meeting which follows.

Hoping to hear from you,
Ellen, ejdewey@gmail.com

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Sherrills Ford Branch Library.  Please join us.
