FALL 2006 NEWSLETTER

This is the first newsletter from the Board of the Friends of the New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped who are not New Jersey State employees. We look forward to providing you with information concerning the Friends of the New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped.

Save the Date: We are in the process of transition to change the bylaws for ethical reasons. The Friends of the New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped have set up a special meeting on March 31, 2007 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, lunch to follow. The purpose of this meeting is solely to ratify the bylaws. The attorney we have retained has already approved these bylaws and he will officially rename the Friends to Friends of the New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped. At this meeting we will vote on ratifying the revised bylaws with approval from its members.

Review the bylaws attached to this newsletter in order to be prepared to vote on passing the revised bylaws. Some of the changes involved are additional board members, dues will be paid on a fiscal year instead of a calendar year, and the Vice-President no longer will be Vice-President Elect.
Since the bylaws have not been ratified, we have decided 2007 dues will be paid in January covering the period from January 1 through December 31, 2007. For 2008 and 2009, dues will be explained in more detail in the next newsletter.

Attached to this newsletter is a membership form. Be aware that our Post Office address has changed to Friends of the NJLBH, PO Box 434, Woodbridge, NJ 07095. All checks must be made out to Friends of the NJLBH. If the check is made out in another name, we will have to return the check for the correction, and we know you do not want to delay your support.

Several ways to show your appreciation and support for the Library for the Blind and Handicapped are to be a member of the Friends of the NJLBH, give personal donations, and remembering our loved ones by donating in their memory.

Hope to see you all at the next meeting so that we can shape and support the NJLBH. Keep the NJLBH in your mind and hearts.
