Friends of the Library Newsletters 1993-1995

The Orlando Public Library Footnotes and the Friends of the Library Newsletters are the ancestors of the library’s current monthly magazine, Books and Beyond!

Each newsletter has information on special events, display cases, art on display, and bookstore news. There are also special features on library departments, staff and resources.

1993

The 1993 newsletters featured each of the 11 branches during the year, beginning in February. The eleven branch visits can also be viewed under Images, below.

In addition, the April newsletter announced that OCLS had been awarded a National Achievement Citation from the Public Library Association for its Info Power seminars program for staff. The June newsletter featured the Silver Summer Scrapbook Vacation Reading Program. The August newsletter features the Talking Books program and new positions for Sally Fry, Marilyn Hoffman, and Laura Murru. The October newsletter describes the duties of the staff who work in the newly formed “Black Watch” department headed by Sally Fry. The department was named “Black Watch” as staff worked during the overnight hours on projects that might impact customer service if conducted during the day. The November newsletter announced the sad news that former staff member Judy Mucci had passed.
