2018 Annual FOCL Awards

The Friends of Connecticut Libraries (FOCL) is pleased to announce solicitations for our Annual Awards program. Here is an opportunity to recognize the great individuals that make up your Friends group or the group itself. Those individuals and groups receiving the award are always most appreciative of receiving the honor.

You best know who has been doing the necessary work that sustains your Friends group and helps you to support your library. Maybe it is the entire Friends group who continuously works in support of your library, rain or shine, day in and day out. Perhaps a committee accomplished a significant goal? Here is your opportunity to say thank you in a way that will let all the Friends of Libraries in the state celebrate their effort!

The awards will be presented at the FOCL Annual Meeting to be held on June 9, 2018 at the Middlesex Community College. The awards are presented in front of all who attend the Annual Meeting; other award winners and attendees enjoy hearing about the people and projects and appreciate the work that is being done by Friends groups around the state.

Nomination forms need to be postmarked by April 14, 2018 and your group should be a FOCL member. Nomination forms are available by clicking this link, 2018 Award Nominations Form.

If you have any questions, do not to hesitate to call Rob Sweeney at 860-749-9324 or email at robsweeney2014@att.net
