It's Time to Plan Your Meet & Greet!

Friends of Kentucky Libraries is once again encouraging all public libraries to plan a Meet & Greet.  These events can be in any format that encourages interaction between library supporters/users and public officials. 

Some libraries prefer Open Houses, informal receptions, or more formal programs.  The time and date should be what is best for each library's situation.

This year  there will be a push for more funding for much-needed library construction.  If your library is considering a construction project, holding a Meet & Greet is a critical step.  Bringing legislators and public officials into the library to show them the tremendous need for new or expanded space is one of the most effective steps in gaining support.

Please consider planning a Meet & Greet.  If you need information or advice, email Linda Stith. And when your Meet & Greet dates are set, be sure to let Linda know!

Read Linda's article on Meet & Greets in the Newsletter,and visit our Meet & Greet page for planning assistance.
