Changes are afoot!

So maybe your kids are back in school, or you're newly retired, or between jobs (this would look great on a resume!), and you've got some time on your hands? Maybe you're a member of a book club, or a group of friends or neighbors who would love to make a difference in the community? Maybe you belong to a service organization that needs a new project? Well, have we got a deal for you!

We want to shake things up here at the Friends of the Ocee Library. We're looking for people who love the library and have some time and energy to spare, and would be interested in serving on our Board.

The Ocee Library needs the support of a Friends organization - our charitable fundraising (primarily in the form of book sales) funds programs and buys materials that make the library such a great resource for the community. And none of this can be done without people like you, and we want to take this opportunity to reach out and ask for your help.

Most of our current board have been with us since the beginning: we were the ones passing around petitions to have the library created, and we were the ones shelving the new books once the library was built, and we were the ones whose faces you've seen at all the book sales and well, you get the picture. We've been around since the "stone ages", and it's time for some new blood and new ideas!

If you would like some more information about serving on the Board of the Friends of the Ocee Library, please let us know via email@oceefriends.org, or by attending a meeting Friday Nov. 9 at 11:00 AM. Hope to see you there!
