Friends of Scarborough Library

 
 

About Us

Friends of Scarborough Library was founded in 2000 and re-constituted in 2018. The aims of the group are to improve the education and leisure facilities provided and raise the profile of our library. In order to achieve this we organise activities and events of local and community interest. We also raise and donate funds to be used for the benefit of Scarborough Library. Recently we have provided equipment for the Lego Club and materials  for the Wellbeing Art Club.

Membership of FOSL is by annual subscription. Subscription fees and donations are used to support Library projects.

The  FOSL Committee are elected at the Annual General Meeting held in April. The Officers of the Committee currently meet at least seven times a year to report on matters including:

Finances

Fundraising

Future Events

The Committee is alway grateful for extra help. If you would like to get involved please email us at: foslibuk@gmail.com

Newsletter

The Reflections newsletter is published twice a year.

The Spring/Summer 2020 issue came out in May. It was sent electronically to members who have supplied an email address and mailed to other members.

 

If you enjoy writing and would like to contribute a poem, short story or article of local interest  to the next issue we'd be delighted to hear from you. Please send your work to: foslibuk@gmail.com
