As we head into the new year…

joschantz-280It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a part of the Jefferson County Library Foundation for nearly a year now. What a fantastic organization, and one that proudly serves as a cornerstone of fundraising and support for our Jefferson County Public Library.

As we continue on in 2016, I believe you will see some exciting changes coming our way. We will be tweaking our Whale Sales, adding some new sales, and hosting a series of book drives in order to replenish our shelves. We’ll also be canvassing for more volunteers and offering many new trainings for our volunteer ranks. For our Friends and supporters, you’ll see a whole new line-up of social and fundraising events throughout the year.

You may have noticed already that our Board of Directors continues to grow, and each added member brings a wealth of talent, experience and knowledge to our governing Board.

Overall, I continue to be grateful to so many of our Foundation donors for their outstanding support. I appreciate all you do to help make our organization a success, and I applaud you for upholding the Jefferson County Library Foundation’s mission and ongoing efforts. Thank you!
