Happy New Year!
Do you know a library that needs Friends?
(Yes, it's a trick question - ALL libraries need Friends!)
United for Libraries<http://www.ala.org/united/> (The American Library Association's Division aimed at Library Board members and Friends Groups) can assist your library in Finding, Organizing, Keeping, and Motivating Friends!
This e-mail is going to introduce you to two features United for Libraries offers as part of the Friends pages. These features each provide Useful, Relevant, and Successful tools and information for Friends groups of any size or experience.
To access these features, go to http://www.ala.org/united/friends and click on the "Friends" button located on the upper right side of the site. You will then be taken to the Friends Site.
On the right navigation, see two options titled "Idea Sharing" and "Organizational Tools." Clicking on the small "+" sign next to each title will expand the list so you can see different offerings under each of these categories. Sample Friends/Library agreements, Outreach ideas from fellow libraries, and Recruitment and Membership suggestions are just a sampling of the available materials Friends can find within these two categories.
Friends Group members and officers can access this site directly via http://www.ala.org/united/friends. Most of the resources mentioned here are available without login, but there are other materials on the site that require a username and password.
The Library of Michigan, through LSTA funding, provides a statewide membership for all Michigan Libraries (and Library Friends Groups!) to United for Libraries.
To obtain the username and password for full access to the UFL site, Friends and Library Boards should contact their Library Director, their Cooperative Director, or The Library of Michigan at membielac at michigan.gov<mailto:membielac at michigan.gov> .
Please contact me - Clare Membiela, membieloac at michigan.gov<mailto:membieloac at michigan.gov>, or 517-335-8132
Here's to a "Friendly" New Year!
