Empire Friends Roundtable Newsletter Archives

News and Notes from the Library Friends Roundtable of the New York Library Association
The Empire Friends Roundtable published three newsletters annually for 19 years (winter, spring, and fall). Archive copies of the last year, 2014, may be found below.

In general, each issue included a message from the EFR President, contact information for the members of the EFR Executive Board, and an EFR membership form.  A semi-regular column, “Good Ideas from All Over,” highlighted projects and events that Friends groups could consider implementing for their library.  In the “Contents” lists below, these regular features are not itemized.
