Thanks to the seven community members who donated delicious homebaked treats for our refreshment table. Thanks also to those who donated cold drinks and paper goods.
Cynthia Costello and Marie Messner kept the dessert table looking pretty and greeted everyone with warm smiles. Thanks, ladies, for your help.
I give a huge thank-you to library director Erin Matlin and her entire staff for welcoming so many speakers and patrons into the library during May with good humor and grace.
Thank you to the finest group of volunteers I have ever worked with, my Friends board: Carol Feingold, vice president; Janet Geanoulis, treasurer; secretaries Dianne Cole, Alison Kelley and Pam Gilday; and the Friends Book Shop manager, Christine Conant. Thanks also to regular meeting attendees Barbara Bell, Priscilla Jones and Billie Porter for all their help with special events planning and for their work in the bookshop.
Congratulations to membership raffle winners Rosemary Piper, first prize; Anne Verret-Speck, second prize; and Donna Collins, third prize.
With the help of such a vast and dedicated team of public library supporters behind us, the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library will continue to show the library in its best light, as a vibrant cultural center and beloved community gathering place.
President of the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library
