Yea! for the Friends of Farmington Libraries

The Friends of Farmington Libraries have a long legacy of supporting the Libraries. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Friends were the first to step forward to provided seed money for the Barney Renovations Project. It is because of the good work of the Friends and the many friends of the library that the Barney Project is going forward. As a result of the above, I paid a visit to the Friends Board Meeting of November 5th to acknowledge the $ 60,000 hard earned dollars they gave to the Barney project and to make a few remarks regarding their gift and the naming of it at the New Barney. The Friends have and will always be special to me and the Libraries and it was just fun to stop by and see them in Action.

Best, Jay
