We are in great need of Duncan Friends to step forward and fill two vacant board positions for President and Vice President of Communications  as well as the Book Sale Committee Chair position. Ideally, we would like to have people fill the remainder of the current terms, through the end of the year and then be added to the election slate for the next two-year term (2016-17).

We desperately need someone to manage our book sales. (Fall Sale: Nov 4-7) This person would oversee the sorting and storage needs throughout the year and the two sales. We have a good group of volunteers who help, but we need someone to be the leader. The past chair will provide documentation and is willing to meet with the new chair regarding the duties and processes for this position.

There are several other open positions and we have position descriptions for each. However, something we want to emphasize is that a volunteer who takes responsibility for a position or committee, makes it his or her own. Please contact Carolyn Harris if you’re interested: cdharris3@gmail.com, 703-683-4943. Or join us at our next open board meeting on Wednesday, July 22 at Duncan to learn more. Monthly meetings are open to anyone!

About Friends of Duncan Library

Our organization solely supports the Duncan branch of the Alexandria Library, located in the heart of Del Ray.

We sponsor a variety of educational and enrichment programs that include children’s programming, enhancing the overall collection, a cinema club and poetry society.

We always welcome new members — you may join online or forms are available at Duncan, across from the circulation desk.  Memberships are good for one year from the date you join and are tax deductible.  Along with memberships, we also host biannual book sales to support the library’s needs.

Thank you for your support of our neighborhood library!
