Open Letter To Our Great Volunteers!

During the month of April organizations across the country recognize volunteers for their efforts in giving of themselves to help others. Volunteerism is the heart of any community, and right here in Jackson County we have some of the best, most dedicated volunteers.

The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library would like to take this opportunity to tell you that you are special, and that your volunteer efforts are vital to making the Jackson County Public Library and the Friends organization a success.

Your diligent dedication has an enormous impact on the library and the Jackson County community. All of the wonderful volunteers who donate their time and talents at the library, at the bookstore, and with the Friends organization play a large role in helping the Friends accomplish their mission. 

So as we celebrate National Volunteer Month, we want to thank you, recognize you, and let you know how much we appreciate your efforts.

Thanks So Much For The Memories, Dottie!

On December 11, the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library and Fontana Regional Library staff held a celebration to honor Dottie Brunette, who will retire as librarian at the end of 2013. A Sylva native, Brunette has worked in the Fontana Regional Library system since 1996. She worked at the Macon County branch, then as head librarian in Cashiers, then back home to Sylva in 2007. She oversaw the relocation and construction of the new library at its currrent location in the historic courthouse. Enjoy photos of the reception.
