Membership benefits include
It’s Not Too Late to Join the (Virtual) Party!
If you have any funds left from your latest coronavirus economic impact payment (a.k.a. the “stimulus check”) you could renew your membership in the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library, make a donation “in honor of” someone you admire, or make a contribution “in memory of” a departed loved one.
Although a couple of years ago almost 1,000 people were counted as Friends, the most recent count shows a dip of several hundred people. The San Antonio Public Library is still providing books, programs, and computers and still counting on support from Friends like you. Join or renew your membership by check (just $15 per person!), or by PayPal or credit card: click on the “Become a Member” link above.
FOSAPL Membership Secretary Needed
Congratulations to Barbara Morrow, who was recently elected as FOSAPL Treasurer
following her past two years of service as the Membership Secretary. “It’s an interesting job,” Barbara said, “and it’s perfect for someone who wants to make a meaningful contribution (without having to attend meetings!).”
If you are attentive to details, competent in use of an Excel spreadsheet/database, and would like to work cooperatively with the FOSAPL Treasurer, this could be the ideal volunteer job for you!
