The Friends of the Library need volunteers for various committees so we can continue our support of the library. Perhaps you have a particular skill or experience that you’d like to bring to our organization? The following committees are looking for additional volunteers:
Book Shop Committee – The committee meets usually every other month to oversee the Friends Book Shop which is run by The Friends of the Library. The committee reviews policy/procedures for the shop, financial performance of the shop and interfaces with Public Relations and Membership to maximize exposure of the shop and increase membership.
Fundraising/Events – The committee will meet at least quarterly to plan events such as our annual meeting, book fair, holiday party, trips and other potential events/ fundraising.
Membership Committee – The committee will meet monthly to track and report on membership statistics – new members, lost members, distribution of membership across categories. Develop and organize a membership drive and should be present at library and community events that might generate growth of the organization. The committee will work with Public Relations to keep the Friends Web and Facebook sites current.
Public Relations Committee – The committee will meet every other month and several members must be familiar with social media/other web-based opportunities including managing the web site and Facebook. Members should participate in events that may increase membership, publicize the Friends Book Shop and develop a multi media approach to increase membership.
