It has been a busy new year for the Friends of the Ormond Beach Library with outstanding programs for adults, children and teens.
Most people don't have a clue about the many ways in which the library touches our community. Think about it…besides the book and video circulation, the library offers free use of computers and wi-fi (and computer training), offers films and book clubs, creative craft workshops (look into the Pinterest classes – a lot of fun!), activities for children and young adults, creates a place for community groups to meet….and a LOT more. The Friends organization is proud to support our library with time and funds.
We want to thank the people who volunteer their time and energy to help out by shelving books, making phone calls, checking in books – and do a lot of the heavy lifting. Recently the library held a Thank You luncheon for the more than 100 volunteers who keep the library working. The Friends are pleased to share in the sponsorship of this event. Thank you to Penny and Diane and all the other members of the library staff for this delightful occasion.
Special thanks to former Board member Judie Korsch, who is stepping down from the day-to-day management of the Book Sale Room due to family responsibilities. Judie began the book sale operation for Friends many years ago and has been the energy and enthusiasm behind the room and the periodic sales. Judie has been a wonderful Friend to us all, and we've asked her to stay on as an Honorary Director so that she can drop by when time permits. We have really appreciated her, and hope to see a lot of her!
