Officers and directors for the board of directors for the Friends of the Madison Public Library are elected each year at the organization’s annual meeting – tentatively scheduled for May or June in 2012. Any currently paid Friends member may volunteer, or be nominated, to serve on the board of directors. Responsibilities include attending six board meetings, helping to coordinate the activities of the organization, or contributing whatever interests or talents potential board members have to offer. FMPL members interested in serving on the board next year are particularly encouraged to attend board meetings to become familiar with the mission and needs of the organization. Persons interested in serving on the board may indicate that interest on the FMPL membership form or may call 833-6310 for more information.
