Each Spring the FONCPL sponsors a series of five Area Workshops sited around the state as an assist to local Friends of the Library groups. This Spring, we have a stellar group of workshops planned and want you to attend one of the workshops at a location and on a date that is convenient to you.

This is a chance to "recharge" your local Friends groups with new information and networking and a chance to share your good ideas with others who might benefit from what you have accomplished. There will be opportunities for attendees to share good ideas, to learn about special programs, to find new sources of funding, to exchange information on book sales, and much more.
At each workshop, there will be a representative of FONCPL who will speak about the Frances B. Reid and Frannie Ashburne awards that are awarded each year to exemplary volunteers and Friends groups.

So that we can ensure there are enough spaces (and refreshments) available for all, we would very much appreciate your early registration.
