 Annual Meeting Recap: Looking back on 2016

President’s Message:

If you attended our annual meeting last year, this is going to sound like a broken record, but a good break. 2016 has been another great year for FOPL in regards to Revenue, volunteer hours and funding. Internet book sales continue to increase – sold items increased by almost 100. Our Thursday and Saturday book sales reached over 9300 patrons, selling more than 90,000 books and generating over $95,000 in revenue. 

This is all thanks to the countless volunteers who guide our organization. In 2016, over 9200 hours were “donated” to the Friends from our volunteers – up by over 1000 hours from last year!  And, that does not count the hours that the board members donate attending meetings, library events, recruiting and coordinating the various committees – all “behind the scenes” efforts that give us another successful year.

Thank you to all the volunteers who work our book sales. A very heartfelt thank you to my fellow board members who have worked to make this another great year for the Friends. Your continued support and efforts do not go unnoticed and are greatly appreciated. Here’s to the beginning of another record year!!
