ALTAFF will coordinate the seventh annual National Friends of Libraries Week Oct. 21-27, 2012. The celebration offers a two-fold opportunity to celebrate Friends. Use the time to creatively promote your group in the community, to raise awareness and to promote membership. This is also an excellent opportunity for your library and Board of Trustees to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library. Friends groups, library Trustees and library staff can access a variety of online resources to help them celebrate National Friends of Libraries Week. Materials available on the ALTAFF website (www.ala.org/altaff/grants_awards/friends/friendsweek) include promotional ideas, editable publicity materials, camera ready bookmarks, ideas from past celebrations and much more.
ALTAFF is pleased to announce a sixth year of awards in conjunction with National Friends of Libraries Week. Two awards of $250 will be given to Friends of the Library groups for activities held during National Friends of Libraries Week, Oct. 21-27, 2012. Application materials are available on the ALTAFF website (www.ala.org/altaff/grants_awards/friends/friendsweek). Entries are due by Dec. 3, 2012.
