MARCH 28, 2019
The San Antonio area-wide Big Give campaign is March 28, 2019. This year we will be raising funds for furnishings for the library. The expansion of the library will greatly increase the size of the library to 33,000 square feet and we need furnishings for all that space! 

The Library District is 200 square miles and the library served 159,593 visitors in 2018. 1,373 distinct programs were offered. Local population growth and the upcoming expansion of library programming will further increase the number of individuals coming to the library. We need furnishings for all this beautiful new space!!

On-line donations will be accepted March 21-28 at FOL will have tables at the Annex and the library during library working hours all day March 28. If you prefer to donate in person, stop by and see us at our FOL tables on March 28!!  
The FOL Board is seeking a Hospitality Chair and an Electronic Communications Chair. 

Attend one of the Board meetings to learn more about FOL activities and ways to become more involved in FOL! Because of schedule conflicts, our next Board meeting is Monday, March 25, 1:00 pm, at the Library Annex.
Planning for the new Butterfly Garden is ongoing and planting is just around the corner. More information on volunteering in the garden will be provided in the coming weeks.
