More than 40 members of various Ocean County Library Friends groups met together Tuesday morning in the Bishop Building to participate in the annual Spring Information Exchange.

“You are truly vital to the success of the library,” said Library Director Susan Quinn as she thanked the Friends for their hard work and dedication. “Know for sure that you have greatly helped your community.”

Two members of the Ocean County Library Friends Steering Group, Joyce Salow (Little Egg Harbor) and Roger Friend (Jackson,) were leaving the committee. Both were guiding members of the group since its inception in 2003 and the Friends honored them for their service.

The Friends Steering Committee identifies issues among the individual Friends and Trustee groups that support the Ocean County Libraries and works together to plan solutions. It is composed of representatives from the Friends groups and the OCL branch managers and administration.

Supervising Librarian Judy Macaluso led the meeting and told them about the latest news from the library, including the launching of the strategic plan, the introduction of its mobile app, and expansion of the eBooks collection.

Suzanne Scro, Manchester branch manager, presented a new program, “Friends Promoting Friends,” that is designed to provide a platform for cross-promotions of events between the branches. It received universal support from the branch Friends groups.

Other topics discussed included bus trips, programming (including recurring events), and book sales.
