The Friends of the Northtown Library will hold its first meeting on Thursday, September 3, at 6:00 p.m. at the Library.
Peter Sifnotis, organizer of the new group, has listed the purposes of the meeting as membership, goal-setting and organizing a book drive. Sifnotis expects to support the work of LEARN, a coalition of neighborhood groups working together to build a new library to replace the current antiquated structure. The Friends will help with fundraising and other activities. Pete’s look forward to working with members of the community to make the new library a reality.
Sifnotis, former Executive Director of POWR (People of West Ridge), left that post to devote his time to the Friends. He’ll be missed. But launching the Friends and getting the book drive organized will add to an already-busy schedule of college coursework and Uber-driving, and the man has to sleep sometime!
