Supporting our local library programs in London Ontario
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of the Friends Executive, we hope you are well and prepared for the cooler Winter weather. We have been busy with the Fall Book Sale, planning for the Annual General Meeting, preparing for the Book for Every Child Program and more. The Fall Book Sale was a great success with over $40,000 raised. A special thanks to Don Menard and the team of volunteers who worked so hard to make this possible. Proceeds from the sale go to the Library to fund value added programs and services for the community that would not be possible without these funds. This year we were able to give over $79,000 for such programs. If you are looking for Christmas gifts don’t forget to check out the Library Bookstore. The Book for Every Child Program, in its 32nd year, began November 1st. It has distributed thousands of books for children who might otherwise not have a new book of their own. The Annual General Meeting is planned for January 10, 2024 and will be followed by the very popular Jazz for the People program. At the Annual General Meeting a deserving Friend is awarded the Friend of the Year. If you would like to nominate someone details can be found in the November newsletter. The information was sent out at an earlier date by either email or mail. We value your membership and thank you for your past membership. We look forward to your continued support. My best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and my sincere thanks to the Friends Executive and to the Public Library Staff for their commitment and continued support.
