2022 Annual Meeting

The 2022 Friends of the Ashland Library annual meeting was held via Zoom on Saturday, March 12, 2022.

Karen Spence reviewed the Board committees, their members, and activities during 2021.  Of particular note were the fundraising efforts of the book sale team and the By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation up-dates.  She also noted the new Recognitions Committee, which focused on small gifts to recognize Ashland staff’s work during the pandemic.

Karen also reported that the Library reached out to the Friends for funding help for the needed remodel of the library lower level.   As a result of the generosity of Friends members, book sale income, and bequest monies, the Friends were thrilled to contribute $100,000 toward the renovation costs.

Minutes of the meeting are HERE.
