Our purpose is to encourage the people of Molesey to use the library and to assist staff in practical ways in their efforts to improve the library services and experience.
Among our accomplishments to date are: strengthening links with local schools, surveying library users, a ‘meet the author’ evening, a hugely successful quiz night and purchasing a sign for the outside of the library.
We would be delighted if you would join us at our second Annual General Meeting to hear what else we have planned. It will be at Molesey Library on Thursday 31st of January, 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Refreshments will be provided.
Our special guest speaker will be Dr. Sola Odemuyiwa (pictured below), who is a well established Surrey cardiologist, who recently turned his hand to writing.
His first book Deadly Conception was published in 2011. Set mainly in Britain, it is a chilling tale of how medicine could be used as a solution to the social and economic problems of society. His next book The Pregnant Mule is due to be published on 1st February, the day after the AGM so it will be interesting to hear something about the new book and how a cardiologist decided to take up writing.
Joanne Ryan recently completed her first six months as manager of Molesey Library, and there has been a change of chairman in the Friends Committee.
James Moore stepped down in September and has been succeeded as Acting Chairman by Pauline Morozgalska, a former head teacher from West Molesey (she is pictured above left with Joanne Ryan).
James led the group through challenging times when Surrey County Council had earmarked Molesey Library for closure, and once the threat abated, transitioned us into the Friends. We are all very grateful for the time and effort James put in to ensure the library remains open for all to enjoy.
So put a date in your diary for the AGM at the library on January 31st and we look forward to seeing you.
