OCL appreciates its Friends

All 21 locations of the Ocean County Library will join together and celebrate National Friends of the Library Week, Oct. 21-27.

Most branches have a Friends of the Library group that provides supplemental equipment, supplies and programs.  They are actively engaged in promoting the library to the community and fundraising to support its activities.

The headquarters branch of the library, Toms River, will host a forum for the Friends members Tuesday Oct. 2. The semi-annual forum will give the groups an opportunity to network, to share their success stories as well as problems they encounter, and offer instruction.

This year Jennifer Doderer, the library’s training coordinator, will discuss the elements of conducting a successful meeting, including a review of procedure, controlling discussions, and encouraging member participation.

The forum’s keynote speaker will be Susan Quinn, Ocean County Library Director.

“Friends are vital to the success of the library,” said Judy Macaluso, Supervising Librarian and liaison to the Friends groups. “We appreciate their dedication and all their hard work.”

The Friends are always looking for community-minded people to assist them as they help the library.  Check with your local branch for more information.
