Friends of the Library Survey

March 08 Friends’ survey and questions from library directors or Friends Presidents:

Who handles memorials and thank you acknowledgments for donations?

• FOL (friends of the library) secretary handles all donations to the FOL.
• My administrative assistant handles the material donations. (I don’t mix donations with FOL gifts since they are handled differently.)
