Hello GLF friends and supporters,
I’m pleased to be writing the 12th issue of News from the GLF. This fall has been busy and it is nice to pause and reflect on all that the GLF has accomplished as we work to support Goodnow.
I would first like to thank all of you who sponsored, donated, and/or attended the gala at The Wayside Inn in September. The positive energy was apparent with friends meeting up for the first time after the summer and after a year of pandemic protocols. We celebrated the Library, our friends and neighbors, and our local businesses. To put it simply, coming together as a community felt really great!
In October, the GLF hosted both the Book Nook’s in-person Book Sale and our first in-person Be Bold event since January of 2020. It was a joy to see lots of people reconnecting in the Community Room – masks and all. Meanwhile, Kristin Schneider and I are very happy to be back in the Library to work. You can find us in the GLF office off the Historical Octagon on Goodnow’s second floor. We would welcome your visit! The connections with each other, the Library staff, and the patrons make our jobs more fulfilling. The Goodnow Library is a community hub — a place not only to read, write, and learn, but a place to gather and socialize. We fully embrace this notion!
As we head towards the holiday season, we cheer for this renewed sense of connection and we look forward to more collaboration with other groups and businesses in the community. Of course as always, we express our GRATITUDE … for all of YOU and everything you do to support Goodnow and the GLF.
Thank you,
