Please let your Friends groups know about the upcoming "FOML Spring
Workshop and Fred Ruffner Symposium" that will be held on Thursday, April
23rd at the Rochester Hills Public Library.

For a full agenda and link to register online, visit:

The theme is *“Community Engagement: How Friends Can Promote the Value of
Your Library”*

  Friends can play a vital role as advocates for the library and its
services. What are some of the strategies that Friends can undertake to
promote and increase the value of the library? How can Friends work with
the director, library staff, and trustees to carry out cooperative and
collaborative activities which make the library a center of community

​and speakers ​

   - "Telling Your Library Story" by our Fred Ruffner Symposium
   speaker John Pelegrino from Gale/Cengage Learning

   - "Success Stories: How Our Friends Promoted Our Millage" with Doreen
   Hannon, Director of the Salem-South Lyon Library

   - and Kris Rzepczynski, Archivist at the Archives of Michigan, speaking
   about "Our Michigan Archives"

FOML will also hold the annual meeting for the membership and present the
2014 Outstanding Friends of the Library Merit Awards.

These workshops are a great time to network with other Friends groups, tour
the Rochester Hills Public Library, and spend a day learning how to support
your library!

​with regards,

Paul Snyder, FOML President
