Christine Barber, author of The Replacement Child and winner of the Tony Hillerman Prize for mystery writing will speak at the annual meeting of the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library on Sunday, February 8 at 1:30 p.m. at the Main Library, 145 Washington Ave. The program is free and sponsored by the Friends. Refreshments will be served.
The first annual Heart of the Library Award will be presented. The winners for 2009 are volunteers Lisa Bemis, Andrea Gross and Pilar Faulkner, all of Santa Fe, who serve as the Friends of the Library’s legislative team. Their successful efforts for the Libraries began in 2003, raising capital funds for the new Southside Branch Library. The award is given to those whose support and contribution of time and talent is extraordinary.
The Friends of the Library is a voluntary group founded in 1974 to raise funds to support the Santa Fe Public Libraries. The Friends are seeking volunteers and potential Board Members to help carry on the voluntary programs and fund raisers sponsored by the Friends. The Friends’ book stores and book sales raise funds to purchase new books and materials plus support hundreds of children’s programs. Join the Friends and learn how you can support the library.
