Friends of Milborne Port Library - June 2018

Black FOMPL logo002Here is the next important date for the Friends: 5.30 pm, Wednesday 20th June. Annual General Meeting in the Library.

Apart from essential annual business reports, our Annual General Meeting gives everyone an opportunity for informal discussion of any issues, or ideas, that are on our minds. The County Council proposals threatening a real reduction in our Library service are definitely on our minds!

The Trustees are only representatives of the community and we want to hear what you think and be supported by your ideas. If you haven’t been to one of our AGMs before—why not make this the year when you truly Take Part?
