Thursday, March 26, 2015



Lisa Milligan, Branch Manager of the Library and Arlene White, President of the Friends of the Library attended the Magnolia Greens Breakfast Club this morning.  With approximately 25 attendees, a lot of information-sharing took place.  Lisa gave a brief history of the library and talked about library services, particularly how to obtain a library card for newcomers. Arlene gave an overview of the Friends Group, its fund-raising efforts and how those funds have been used in the library. Remarks and discussions were well received and the group went away with a better understanding of their local library and the Friends' Group that supports it.
