Our First Meeting – Starting the Conversation

The FOL’s first (unofficial) meeting was held on May 17th, 2018. We discussed many ways in which we can include all members of our community and will be planning monthly FOL-sponsored events in which we promise to be interactive, fun and enjoyable!

In addition, we want to find out what the community would like to engage in for activities. Send us an email, stop by the library, and/or fill out one of our “interest surveys” (as seen below) to help us gear up for the upcoming months.

We are still looking to recruit new members to the Friends of the Highgate Library Group in the hopes that the events that are held will be well attended and that new ideas and input can be brought to the table! Visit this page to learn more about membership options and while you’re here, feel free to scroll through our FOL web page to find out more about what we do, our mission and what we hope to accomplish!

Be sure to check out HLCC’s Facebook page for upcoming events

Our next meeting is scheduled for June 14th from 4:30-5:30. We hope to see you there!

First and foremost,

Thank you for visiting the Friends of the Library (FOL) website!

We are very excited to promote our FOL group on a social media platform, all so that we can spread the word of how wonderful an opportunity it is to become a member! Whether you decide to become an Active or Supporting Member, you are providing a service that allows the chance to advocate for and support our local public library by helping to foster, encourage, sponsor, and promote the Library through contributions (for activities and items not covered in the annual operating budget) and program enrichment.

The HLCC looks forward to working collaboratively with new and returning members in addition to those interested in joining our Friends of the Library Group.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Highgate Library and Community Center! Stop by, call or contact us via email.

 

We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

The HLCC Staff
