Thank You for Being a Friend

Many public libraries work with their Friends groups regularly but may not know the ins-and-outs of their day-to-day work. Curious to learn more about the Friends and their operations from an insider’s perspective, I reached out to the president of the Friends of the Southwest Neighborhood Library (SNL) in Washington, D.C., Georgine Wallace.
