February 2010

You are currently browsing the monthly archive for February 2010.

Period costumes (prizes for the best), cool music, food from The Emory, and a dramatic reading of the book by the city council. The stuff that dreams are made of.

Ferndale FriendsThanks to those who turned out at our first 2010 volunteer meeting and volunteered their time to participate in the Big Read.  A schedule is available here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tRHClWUwoanw2cMO7LEU5uQ&output=html

We still need a few people to represent the Friends and hand out flyers at a few events in February/March so if you’re avaialable, let us know at ferndalefriends.org@gmail.com .  The work is easy, quick, and fun, and may be at events you’d attend anyway!

  • Join us tomorrow–Saturday, February 20th–at the Library–642 E. Nine Mile–for a brief (we promise) meeting to organize participation in Big Read events.  Since these are events you may be going to anyway, go as a Friends’ member, help us announce our presence to Ferndale and recruit new members.  We are looking for volunteers to help moderate book discussions, welcome visitors at Big Read lectures and presentations and help us organize the parties that are coming up.

And as a special bonus, if you come tomorrow, you’ll be the first on your block to know the until-now closely guarded secret date for the library’s Grand Opening!!!

We need youThanks to those of you who have already volunteered to help and who have joined us as Fans on Facebook.  We’re planning a BIG “Friends Revival” meeting later in spring to prepare for the grand opening, but before then we will also host a meeting for those interested in volunteering for Big Read events (see: http://ferndalefriends.org/?p=24).

Please join us for that meeting, help out at Big Read events and enjoy yourself in the process:

When: Saturday, 20 February, 2pm-3pm
Where: Ferndale Public Library 642 E. Nine Mile.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here or call Darlene Hellenberg at the library, 248-546-2504.

p.s. We are still in the process of scheduling the “Revival” but it’s likely to be on the afternoon of Sunday, April 25 at the library.  Mark your calendar for that too!
