November 2, 2013 Workshop for Library Boards, Friends and Directors

On November 2, 2013, the Friends of the Berks County Public Libraries sponsored a workshop for Library Boards, Friends and Directors. Friends President Linda Baer was the moderator and worked with Berks County Library System Administrator Denise Sticha to organize the event. The Board members made sure the day was a success.
Sally Gardner Reed, the Executive Director of United for Libraries and Sue Solarczyk, President of PCBL, provided information and included a helpful question and answer session. Emphasis was placed on Getting Along Together: the specific roles and expectations for Library Directors, Library Boards of Trustees and Friends of the Library organizations.
