Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey

Spring has sprung! Many of us are beginning spring cleaning, inside and out, and are looking forward to spring plantings and getting back into the garden.

And speaking of gardens, I’ve seen much press about community gardens lately. Some are communal, others have individual plots, and some offer both options.

I see Friends as a kind of hybrid community garden, where
literacy and all sorts of personal education grow. Within Friends, many hands work to fulfill our mission, yet it is also where each individual can cultivate a particular interest.

I may be the current President, but I am not The Friends. All of us are Friends. We all worked so hard to help get this beautiful library/community center, and we galvanized the community to get the attractive sign to announce FOL programs and all the wonderful programs and activities Jennifer develops. So let’s keep up the momentum! Each of us can help with a small thing; the small things will add up to a big thing: The Friends, for the community and for each of us.

See page 5 for a variety of ways to become involved.

Hoping to hear from you,

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