Since large gatherings are still restricted, the Friends of North Grenville Public Library will be holding their postponed AGM Thursday, April 22, 2021, 7:00 pm via Zoom. Everyone is encouraged to pour themselves a glass or cup of their favorite beverage and join us. If you are not familiar with Zoom, be assured it is very user friendly and the Library staff will be happy to provide assistance. You may join by contacting the CEO of North Grenville Public Library, Rachel Brown, at email@example.com or 613-269-3636. Please do so well in advance of the scheduled Zoom meeting.
Our business meeting will begin with a financial report and a brief report on the Friends’ year, which will require acceptance by the membership. These reports will be accessible on the Friends website in April. (ngpl.ca/support-the-library/friends-of-ngpl). Then we will have several motions requiring ratification:
- Motion to create a Junior Friends of North Grenville Public Library.
- Motion to recognize the people who established the Friends as Founders.
- Motion to recognize a citizen (to be named at the meeting) for their contribution to the Friends with an honorary lifetime membership.
- Motion to confirm the executive for the year 2021. NOTE: Any member of the Friends of North Grenville Public Library can put forward their name to become a member of the executive. Just leave a note with Rachel Brown at the library or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once our essential business has been completed, we will announce this year’s winner of the coveted “Star of the Library Award”.
We will conclude with a bedtime story by Sue Bergeron.
