GPL Friends Receives National Recognition


The FrieUFLnds of the Glendale Public Library will be recognized on January 23, 2017, at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta as one of the two winners of this year’s National Friends of Libraries Week Awards. The Friends will receive $250 and a certificate in honor of our National Friends of Libraries Week celebrations held during the week of Oct. 16-22, 2016.

Applicants were judged on creativity and innovation; involvement of Friends, library staff, Trustees, and/or advisory committee; recognition of Friends group, and promotion of Friends group to the community, school, students, and/or faculty.

We wish to thank Friends membership chair, Sandy Rupp, who wrote and submitted the application on the Friends behalf.
