2017 Annual Meeting

The 2017 Annual Meeting will be held on May 8, 2017 at the library.

2016 Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting was held on May 9, 2016 at the library. Friends in attendance had an opportunity to meet with members of the Board at a reception prior to the meeting. The meeting included a report by the Board President, David Goldsworthy and the election of officers.

David Goldsworthy thanked members of the Board and volunteers for their service and presented a brief overview of FOHL fund raising efforts and contributions to the library. The annual used book sale netted approximately $35,000 and provided funding for books, audio and video materials, periodicals, reading programs for children and adults, program and staff support, equipment, furnishings, beautification (including the Reading Garden), and community support.

Following the meeting, Barbara Miller, a Senior Docent at the Mt. Cuba Conservancy and a former president and current member of the Friends of the Hockessin Library Board, presented a brief history of the establishment of Mt. Cuba and described the garden, its programs and research.
