VolunteerWe hope you join one of our teams of volunteers!
Felton Library Friends exists because of the inspiration and dedication of community volunteers. Now that we have the funds to build our new library, a revitalized chapter will shape the outcome of this exciting project. Your interest and passion is needed to bring this project to fruition. Please consider joining one of the newly formed teams below. Teams meet as needed to work on specific projects. The Co-Leaders of the teams make up the Steering Committee. Steering Committee meetings are announced through subscribers to FLF email and are announced in the Press Banner. The public is invited.
The Grants/Funding Team is working on raising money for special features in the new library and for the development of the Nature Explore and Restoration projects. The library and furnishings will be covered by Measure S funds; however, the community may want to add extra art, displays, special collections and equipment to enhance the branch. We will be required to raise the necessary funds to develop the children’s Nature Explore area, landscape the surrounding area, and complete the restoration of the riparian area.
Grants/funding team – Ralph Miljanich (Co-Leader), Jim Mosher (Co-Leader) Linda Fawcett, Joe Griffith, Donna Ziel, Kristin Praly, Nancy Gerdt, Kevin O’Connor, Jen Michelsen
The Restoration will provide both physical support that may include removing invasive species and planting natives as well as planning for future support for maintenance of the land. Public education on restoration technique will be a focus in the future.
