Keep It Growing: Friends Workshop

View the flyer for this event.

The Friends of the Webster Public Library will host a free workshop for members of Friends of Libraries groups, interested community volunteers, library administrators and staff, and library trustees.  Questions may be directed to Karen Stoddard, President, Friends of the Webster Public Library at (585) 872-3808 or via e-mail, kstodd194@gmail.com.

“Keep It Growing! Strengthening Your Friends of the Library Group” will be held from 10 a.m. until noon at the Webster Public Library, Webster Plaza, 980 Ridge Road, Webster, New York.  Please note that the library's entrance is at the rear of the plaza, facing Van Ingen Drive. Registration check-in begins at 9:30 a.m. Please feel free to bring literature about your Friends projects and services to share.

This two-hour presentation is provided by volunteers from the Friends of Libraries Section of the New York Library Association.  It will offer ways that participants can develop their library’s Friends group, working to sustain the organization long-term.  Discussion will center on continuous membership recruitment, engaging volunteers, and revitalizing the core members of the group to carry on their crucial advocacy work for their community libraries.

There will be an opportunity to network with members of other Friends organizations after the presentation concludes at noon.  Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and a beverage.

We hope you will join us!
