Most recent letter from our Friends president, Meg Adams:
(dated 3/8/2017)

Good afternoon,

The Friends met on 2/23/17 at 6:30 pm at Bancroft Library.

At the meeting we discussed the upcoming Membership Letter for 2017-2018 which should be mailed out no later than mid April. We talked about including information that let everyone know what items the Friends have funded this year.

The Friends voted to continue the Hildene passes for another year. Please take advantage of this great opportunity. We decided to not renew the "Go Museum" member ship which ends in July and do MiSCi membership which includes the "Go Museum" as well as many other educational locations throughout the state. Please check this out on the Library's website. A couple of great opportunities. {see our About Us page for information about the museum passes.}

The Friends voted to match a grant which would be 400 from the Friends and will go towards Children's books.

Voted to pay for 4 of the new library chairs which are now at the libary.

Voted yes to assist in supplies/snacks for the upcoming garden program in March.

Talked about reaching out to Meg Phillips (local author) to see if she wanted to do an event.

Big item that was discussed was the Plant/Food/Book Sale on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. We need help! We need donations as well as volunteers for that day. There will be a larger book sale in Proudfit so we will need help setting that up as well on Friday afternoon/evening. Please let me know if you can assist for the sale. We truly can't move forward with this until we have more volunteers for the day of the sale. If you plan on donating plants please be sure to label them as there are times we do not have someone familiar with plants to help that day.

Our next meeting is the Annual Meeting on April 6th at 6:30. We need a new person to be willing to serve as President of the Friends. We hope you will join us.

Thank you

Happy 2017. I hope the new year is treating everyone well and that you are all happy and healthy. The Wreath Sale was the best one yet since I have been involved with the Friends. Thank you to everyone that was involved whether it was making calls, making wreaths or supporting the sale itself. Thank you.

Our Next Friends Meeting is next Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30 pm at the library. We will be working on our Membership Letter for the year and beginning to talk about the Food and Plant Sale for Memorial Day weekend. We will need help for the sale.

In April we will have our Annual Meeting. I will get that date out within the next couple of weeks. We are still looking for someone to become President of the Friends. Please let me know if you are interested.

As always Thank You! Without all of your continuous support the Friends would not continue.

Take care,

Meg Adams

2016 Wreath Sale

Thank you to everyone that helped make this fundraiser possible. Thank you to Sarah Winslow and her family for their beautiful products and hard work. To those that helped call--Wendy, Rachael, Eileen, and Alesa. To Sharron Winslow for helping today and with the businesses. To Wendy for today and taking care of the paperwork. Last but not least, thank you to everyone that participated and purchased a holiday decoration whether it be wreaths, kissing balls or half baskets. This was the biggest year in sales that we have had in the four years I have been doing this fundraiser. Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Meg Adams
