FOSAPL Board Meeting Locations and Dates
Time to Renew Your “Friend”-ship for 2019
The Membership Matters Committee’s year-end goal is to have a membership recruitment table/event at each Branch before the end of the year. This could be at a book sale, election day table, or other branch library event. Branch officers were emailed in the beginning of October with a membership list and offer to assist. All new and returning members joining now will have their membership through the end of 2019.
Get competitive! The Friends branch that increases its membership between Sept. 1 to Jan. 15 by the largest percentage will be awarded $50, second-largest will get $25, and the third-largest increase will get $10. Awards will be presented at the Jan. 27 annual meeting.
Membership may be renewed online (friendsofsapl.org) using PayPal or credit card, or by mailing a check or cash in a membership envelope.
Everyone who joins or renews for 2019 will receive an acknowledgement postcard or email.
Question: How does a Branch Friends group obtain more membership envelopes?
Answer: The membership envelopes are stored at the BookCellar. You can either visit the BookCellar or call the BookCellar at 210-227-9519 and have the envelopes sent in the interlibrary delivery system.
Question: How does a Branch obtain their membership list?
Answer: Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
BookCellar Volunteers Needed
The BookCellar is in need of volunteers! If you love books, magazines, movies, music and meeting new people, the BookCellar may be the perfect place for you. We are short staffed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays (p.m. shift), Fridays and Sundays.
Does this sound good, but you’re still not convinced? That’s okay. Come volunteer for one shift and try it out. We are grateful for all our volunteers and we’d love to add to our family. Come visit us in the basement of the Central Library, or call us at 210-227-9519.
Hope to see you soon!
