Ambler Station Singers Holiday Concert
The Ambler Station Singers provided an afternoon of holiday songs and music on December 10, 2022. Their program - The Gift - featured classic Christmas carols, Hanukkah songs, and modern favorites. It even included a kazoo solo! Young and old enjoyed the show and the refreshments that were served afterwards. Everyone left in a festive mood!
December Book, Jewelry, and Poinsettia Sale
After two years, the Friends were thrilled to host a sale in the large conference rooms again. This was the big holiday sale, and books, jewelry, holiday decorations, and beautiful large and small poinsettias were available to purchase. There was a good crowd on all three days (December 1-3), and people were able to do some early holiday shopping for friends and family.
Friends Annual Membership Meeting
On November 9, the Friends hosted their first annual Membership Meeting. This meeting was open to all members. The meeting started with a presentation from the Library Director, Regina Vesely. She spoke about all the ways the Library and the Friends worked together. The meeting also included presentations on the activities that occurred in 2022 as well as a glimpse into future plans and upcoming events. An election of Board officers was held and we are pleased to announce the same officers that were already doing a great job were re-elected.
October Book Sale
The "No Tricks Just Books" book sale was held in the Café on October 7 and 8. There was a Halloween theme and many people came out to pick up a few reading treats. This sale was notable because the Friends welcomed several new volunteers this month and they assisted with stocking books, straightening shelves, and providing assistance to our customers.
We are looking forward to our next big book sale which will be held in December, and will also include jewelry and poinsettias for sale.
