Supported by the Library Trustees, a meeting was held to create a Library Foundation
A hand-selected group of willing volunteers was assembled by the Library Trustees and Director of Libraries to help create what is to become the Arlington Libraries Foundation. These early meetings focused on the mission of the Foundation; how it would incorporate into the infrastructure of the already existing supporting organization of the Library Trustees, Friends of the Robbins and Friends of the Fox, and the legal and tax requirements of separating donated funds from the town funds. A blank book quickly filled with guidelines and parameters, which allowed the Foundation to have an official launch half a year later. Thank you to everyone who helped guide the board through this process.
