Happy holidays from the Friends. Visit our trees at the Folsom Library and the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary.
Volunteer to hold a Friends office or join the board
The Friends of the Folsom Library nominating committee will be meeting soon to select a slate of officers to be elected at the December board meeting. The new officers will serve from Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2016 (wow time flies).
We will be electing a new president, secretary and parliamentarian plus several board members-at-large. We would welcome new faces and energy on our board!
The Friends of the Folsom Library’s sole mission is to raise money to support the Folsom Library. Our funds pay for nearly all the free programming that so greatly benefits our community – from toddler story times to teen and adult programs to senior activities and materials. It’s a long list, and for many people these programs are vital. Last year, we bought 28 new public computers, which are free for patrons to use and nearly always occupied.
If you have any interest in helping us support our wonderful library, or any questions about our election, please contact our nominating committee chairman, Ron Byrd, at email@example.com Even if you’re not a board member, you’re always welcome at our meetings and events.
We have a new page! On our "GivingTree" web page, you can donate to buy a leaf on our new Giving Tree in the entryway to the library. These leaves are a permanent and prominent way to honor library supporters. Minimum purchase: $250. Visit the "GivingTree" page for more information.
Lynn Doiron's photos show the tree in progress, with board member Bill Cobb placing a leaf, center. We are engraving the leaves with the names of donors who contribute, or have contributed, at least $250 to the Friends. Higher levels of giving with be recognized.
The tree is made of wood and was beautifully sculpted and painted for us by Mike Jimena, co-owner with his wife, Connie Mockenhaupt, of Mikon Productions. You may recognize him as a director/producer and often actor at the Sutter Street Theater. Each leaf was hand cut so no two exactly match. Executive Engravers on Natoma Street is etching the names.
Sunday Cinema Series: Next free movie Aug. 17
The Sunday Cinema Series has become one of the library's most popular offerings, thanks to a partnership between the library and the Folsom Film Society. On the third Sunday of every month, you can attend a classic popular movie at the library – for free. Showings begin at 1 p.m. in the meeting room.
August's offering will be "Bombay Beach." Watch for more information soon.
