At their March meeting, the Arlington Libraries Foundation Board noted that the first meeting of the Foundation was March 14th 2013, and the current meeting marked the 2nd Anniversary of the formation of the board.
The transition process to form the Foundation as a separate entity from the Library predates the launch of the foundation, and the board thanks all those who helped in creating, developing and bringing to fruition this entity. In the first two years the board has had successful fundraising campaigns for all of their permanent funds, added a fund, increased awareness of the Foundation in the community, and has been able to meet the needs for funds requested by the Director of Library. With a new website, a social media campaign, and a new Director of Library, the board members look forward to seeing what success the Foundation can help the library achieve in the future.
Thank you to all who have donated be it monetarily, physically, mentally or with professional expertise.
