Spring Workshops for 2017

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 or more 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 Ashburn awards that are awarded each year to exemplary volunteers and Friends groups.

So that we can ensure there are enough spaces available for all, we would appreciate your early registration. Most begin at 10 AM and end at 1 PM, but please verify times for your specific workshop with the appropriate contact person. Confirmation with details will be sent upon receipt of registration.
