The Friends of Brooks Memorial Library Board of Directors is seeking two new Board members. The mission of the Friends is to support the Library through advocacy, public relations and fundraising to provide the highest quality library services to the community.
Annually the Friends host three major book sales, produce public concerts, such as last fall’s A Night of Jazz and Dancing with Chris Bakriges Quartet, and community events, most recently a Trivia Contest. Proceeds from Friends’ productions go to support a wide range of library materials and services including the First Wednesday lecture series, public access computers, Children’s Room resources and events, free museum passes and the purchase of print and digital materials.
The Board invites individuals who are interested in advocating for the Library or working on public relations initiatives and fundraising activities to apply for a three-year term on the Board. The Friends meet monthly on the third Wednesday from 4:30 – 6PM.
To apply for a Friends Board position, send a letter of interest and current resume to President, Friends of the Library,224 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301. Applications are due by January 31. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
