I am pleased to have been nominated by the Friends Board as the new Board President as of May 1, 2020. As you know, Cyndi Bloom has stepped down as Board President after over 7 years in that role, during which time she guided us through many memorable occasions. Under Cyndi's leadership, we re-branded our organization, developed a bookstore marketing plan, increased our social media presence, and gave over a quarter million dollars to support library programs, events and major projects that enhance our community. In recognition of Cyndi's value to our organization, we recently nominated her for a Florida Library Association Friends Outstanding Member award. The award winner as of this date has not been announced, but for us, Cyndi is our Friends Outstanding Member.
