Your purchases help make “First Dibs” and Book Sales award winners
Next Friends of SCRL Book Sale is 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. December 6 preceded by Friends members preview sale 3 - 5 p.m. December 5
Thanks to Carolyn Piscitello for putting the book sales together and to the many other volunteers who help make our book sales so successful. No wonder the Florida Library Association gave a Special Projects Honorable Mention Award for 2008 to the Friends of SCRL Book Sales and First Dibs programs.
See the award in the display case in the lobby of SCRL.
Last April’s Friends book sale took in $1,900 from 642 buyers, nine of whom became FOSCRL members.
See the January issue of this news- letter for an update on the popular First Dibs program.
Take books, DVDs, CDs, puzzles to SCRL before the next BIG BOOK SALE
Five years of Friends fun history in “online” scrapbook
Point your friends to what they’ve been missing: The Friends’ beautiful website at
Highlights from the past five years of event photos, awards, promotions, press coverage, and publications have been gathered into digital scrapbooks and posted on the Friends website. Like a physical scrapbook, these albums decoratively show photos, keepsakes and articles from book sales, luncheons and more. Better than a typical scrapbook, these albums can be viewed online 24/7 by anyone, anywhere. They also link to more photo galleries, full text newsletters, scanned articles and more. These scrapbooks will continue to preserve the memories and memorabilia of the Friends. You can view the scrapbooks online at http://friendsofscrl.org.
Calendar of Events
Another addition to the Friends web site is an improved Calendar of Events. Just roll over any highlighted date on the small home page calendar to view event details, times and even photos. Events are color coded by topic to help you narrow down your choices. A quick click takes you to more on that date or to a box with more information.
The new calendar automatically tracks dates and eliminates old information, saving maintenance time and cost. In addition to the home page mini-calendar, go directly to a full list of upcoming events at friendsofscrl.org/events/. While on site, just click on “Events” at the top of the page information bar. Buy tickets to our Author Luncheon Series featuring Sherryl Woods, Bob Morris, James O. Born and Jeff Shaara. Order their recent books from our luncheon page to further benefit the Friends.
