Friends of Libraries groups now have their very own national week of celebration! FOLUSA is coordinating the third annual National Friends of Libraries Week October 19 - 25, 2008. The celebration offers a two-fold opportunity to celebrate Friends. Use the time to creatively promote your group in the community, to raise awareness, and to promote membership. This is also an excellent opportunity for your library and Board of Trustees to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library.
"We Treasure Our Friends" was the theme of the Hunterdon County (NJ) Library's celebration of their Friends. Staff created a treasure chest with gold medallions illustrating the various ways the Friends support the library.
