FLS 2021 Annual Membership Meeting
Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the FLS Annual Membership Meeting on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The meeting included recognition of the 2021 recipients of the FLS Randall Enos Conference Scholarship and the FLS Daniel W. Casey Library Advocacy Award and the installation of the 2021-22 Executive Board, including our auxiliary volunteers.
Following the business portion, Karen Ash, President of the Friends of the Angelica Free Library, shared Friends on Facebook: Five Ways Social Media Can Help You Meet Your Goals. It was a very informative talk. Thank you, Karen, for sharing your expertise and highlighting the success of your group in its efforts to support the library.
