Friends of JRVL hold meeting

The Friends of the James River Valley Library held a meeting recently, the first of what is expected to be an annual meeting and social in the future.

A collection of Raggedy Ann and Andy items was recently donated by a Friend of the Library. Friends board member Zenithe Leininger described how the collection would be available at an auction to benefit the library. The auction is in the planning stages.

Other topics covered were the Friends treasurer’s report by Katie Webster, Love Your Library Week by Jill Shaffer, and adult programs and library stories by Bill Kennedy.  

Library Director Joe Rector described the Centennial Initiative project that will renovate Alfred Dickey in time for the library’s 100-year anniversary on Presidents Day in 2019.

Amendments to the Friends bylaws were approved by the attending members.

The Friends are looking for community members interested in serving on the Friends Board. Those interested should contact Bill Kennedy at 252-2217 or send him an email at
