Membership News

E-mails from the president ~ Sometimes we put the Newsletter aside after it arrives and forget that we intended to go to an event listed on the calendar page. Sometimes our Bookstore Manager, Shel Schuster, decides to have a last-minute sale that was not announced in the Newsletter. To cover both of these cases, our President, Sharon Schuster, has decided to send brief e-mails, reminding you of library events during the month and telling you when a special sale will be held. (See President's Message and Re: Book Sales & E-mails.) However, only about 25% of our members have given us their e-mail address. We would like to be able to reach all of you quickly. Please include your e-mail address on your renewal form. We will not share it with anyone and will use it only about once a month for the purposes I've outlined. After you've received one or two notices, if you don't want to get more, you can simply e-mail Sharon, asking to be removed from the list.
