2018 Events

Friends of the San Juan Island have exciting events planned for October!

See our first infographic newsletter that should be in your mailboxes now and demonstrates why being a Friend of the Library is an important membership to consider.
The FOL membership drive for 2019 begins October 1, 2018 and there is an incentive for early bird joining and renewal. Those membership applications received between October 1 –December 1, 2018 will be eligible to enter a draw for a $100 gift certificate to Downriggers. The winner will be drawn at the FOL Holiday Sale scheduled for December first. Be that early bird!

Check out the display cabinet as you come into the Library during October. Friends of the Library have a colorful and informative display for the month.

Stop by the FOL Membership Table in the Library salon. You will find it informative, interactive and you can pick up a Membership Application for 2019.

Celebrate National Friends of Libraries the week of October 21-27, 2018. FOL has a week of activities planned that everyone should enjoy. Have a look at the week’s calendar so you don’t miss a thing.
