A New Year Reminder

Many companies encourage employees to give to charitable organizations by matching their gift giving. If you are the employee of such a company, your donation to Platt Branch will double in value. Although we always welcome special donations, your annual membership dues also qualify for matching funds. Boeing, Sempra Energy, and Universal Studios are some of the local employers that participate in this kind of program. The company will provide you with a form that you send to us with you dues or contribution. We take care of the rest.

Members & Volunteerism

A great many of you volunteer to help the Friends and Platt Library when you send in your membership. One of my jobs as Membership Chair is to forward these offers of assistance to the Friends Volunteer Coordinator, Elaine Corman, or to the appropriate library staff member. I am continually impressed with your willingness to help. The bookstore could not exist, book sales couldn't happen, and the library staff couldn't receive the help they need without such generous gifts of volunteer time. In this issue, we salute you, the unsung heroes that make things happen. I'd like to add my personal thanks. Because of my role in dealing with so many of you through membership activity, I am in a unique position to see the quantity of good will that you lavish on our fine library. My hat is off to you all.

Millie Berger, Membership VP
