Hello Library Supporters!
On April 8, the Core Committee from Friends of the Applegate Library held a networking session for the Board Members of all the Friends of the Library groups supporting various branches.
The thrust of the meeting was to bring these separate groups together to join their voices to our requests for an additional $1.3 million dollars in FY 2017-18. Their cooperation is vital to our success in convincing out -of -area Supervisors that libraries really do matter.
VITAL COMMUNITY TASK
Please write to the Board of Supervisors telling them that libraries have been shortchanged too long and the 2017-18 FY budget needs to be increased. $1.3 million will give the libraries a sustainable budget that will provide funds for staff, collections, facilities and prevent the closure of any more branches.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
A budget hearing has been tentatively scheduled for April 24 in Auburn. This is the meeting where it is VITAL that we fill the hall and into the overflow with concerned citizens. Please mark your calendar now to attend this meeting at 9 a.m.
Meeting location and time:
175 Fulweiler Avenue
Auburn, CA 95603
April 24, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.
Please find the Friends of the Applegate Library on Facebook, friend us and share our page with all your friends and neighbors. We need to get the word out before the April 24th meeting!
Thanks to all our wonderful supporters.
