FOL Members Updates

Friends of the Library Members Update – February 2021


We greatly appreciate all of our “Friends” of the Library, and we were looking forward to the annual Membership Appreciation event in March at South Regional Library. But, due to coronavirus restrictions, we will not be able to gather together this year.

We’re sorry that we won’t be able to see many of you in person this year, but we hope by March 2022 we’ll be able to again thank you, our wonderful FOL Friends, at our next Membership Appreciation Event.

Be assured that the Friends continue to fund adult and children’s programs, pay postage for the Mail-A-Book program for the homebound, fund the genealogy databases, and purchase Wish List items for the branch libraries—items not covered by their budgets. This year, FOL also gave Collier County Library $100,000 for the purchase of e-books. (The demand for e-books has grown dramatically because of the COVID-19 pandemic this past year.)

Thank you for being a Friend! We appreciate your support, especially during this pandemic year.

Connie Kindsvater, President
Friends of the Library-Collier County
