FRIENDS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
Thanks to all this who participated, the Winter Book Sale was a success, netting almost $4,100. Great job, everyone!
A special note of thanks to the FOIL volunteers and the young adults from the Orcas Booster Club, Orcas 4H Club, and AmeriCorps who helped at the sale.
Lobby book sales for February was down a bit, at $400, due mainly to the snow closures.
Look for the opportunity to renew your FOIL membership within the next month. A mailing will be going out to current (and past) members soon. Please consider renewing your membership. (And thank you, if you’ve already done so for 2019.)
The Board is always looking for members willing to volunteer a few of their hours to help with event publicity, book sorting, event set-up and other tasks.
