Are you a frequent Somerville Public Library user? Would you like to show your support for the library in an active way? Here is your chance: The Friends of the Somerville Public Library (FSPL) are looking for new Board members!
The FSPL is an organization whose mission is to promote interest in and support for the library's programs, resources, and needs. Its Board members are library lovers who meet monthly to plan programs that further the Friends’ mission. Board members are expected to serve on or chair committees, and to give several hours of their time beyond the monthly meetings. Board tasks include - but are not limited to - planning the book sales; writing and editing the Friends newsletter; supporting the annual membership drive, and helping run events.
Currently, the Board has a particular need for individuals who have experience fundraising and organizing events, are tech-savvy or have experience using social media to promote an organization. If you have any of the above interests or skills, please consider joining the Board.
For more information or to express your interest, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, call the main library at (617) 623-5000 and tell them you are interested in working on the Board. A response before June 1st, 2013 is greatly appreciated.
