We enjoyed an exhibit of sculpted, altered and deconstructed books transformed into works of art.
We even tried our hands at making our own origami book.
In the business part of the meeting, we voted on some changes to our bylaws and standing rules.
We voted to change our fiscal year to conform to the calendar year — our fiscal year will now begin on January 1 and end on December 31 (a change from beginning on April 1 and ending on March 31)
We voted to “do business as” “Ventura Friends of the Library”. This is to avoid confusion with Santa Barbara Friends of the Library (also possibly abbreviated as “SBFOL”). So, in future, we will refer to ourselves as Ventura Friends of the Library (VFOL) — we’re now working on filing the paperwork and updating our logo and correspondence materials.
