Letter from President

Hello and welcome, Friends!

I am Sue Johnson, and it is my pleasure to introduce myself as President of the Friends of Michigan Libraries.

As public libraries emerge from the COVID 19 pandemic,  serving our communities remains challenging. FOML is actively planning how to assist our members reimagine ways to restore and increase support of libraries.

The Mission of FOML is to help members support their libraries by:

  • sharing information,
  • supporting efforts, and
  • advocating for members at the local, state, and national levels.

FOML continues to fulfill our Mission Statement in the age of Zoom and social media opportunities. We’re beginning to safely meet in-person through our Talk About Friends events, our Focus on Friends Bulletin and access to online resources on this website and through additional social media opportunities will help us keep in touch with you and offer you the means to keep in touch with FOML.

We invite you to share your experiences, challenges and successes for working through limited conditions. Let us know how you helped your libraries through this transition period. Check this site regularly to see what your fellow Friends groups have done.

We are here for you.
