Frances B. Reid Group Awards
B. Reid was the guiding force in organizing and establishing the
Friends of North Carolina Public Libraries (FONCPL) organization
in 1980. As a consultant in Library Development at the NC State
Library, she encouraged volunteers, helped draft organization
by-laws and was always there when questions needed answers. She
exhibited wit and wisdom that was needed to bring FONCPL into
fruition. We recognize our debt of gratitude to her by the
establishment of the annual Frances B. Reid awards, given to
outstanding Friends groups in our state.
