The Calaveras County FOTL Annual Meeting was a lovely time, with good company and delicious dinner at Murphys Historic Hotel. Thank you to Murphys Library Board members for organizing the evening!

President Bob Dean spoke about accomplishments of the Friends organization, and County Librarian Nancy Giddens talked about improvements and plans for the future of our libraries. Treasurer Shirley Huberty gave a financial update, and Cindy Lavaghetto from Angels Camp FOTL shared briefly that a speech is prepared and ready for volunteers interested in being part of our Speakers Bureau.

Three 'At Large' Board members were voted on: Shirley Huberty, Kate Garrahan, and Mary Cole. Bob Dean announced that current VP, Pru Starr, will take over as President, next year; Kathi Copeland from Copperopolis will step up to Vice President; Kate Garrahan will take over as Secretary; and Mary Hultgren from Murphys will succeed Shirley as Treasurer.
