Annual General Meeting

735 Broughton Street, Victoria, BC V8W 3H2
At 7:00 pm

You are invited to attend this important meeting to hear about the Friends of the Library
fund-raising activities, and to elect a new board of directors.
The Library’s annual “Wish List” is to be presented for your approval.
We will have some delicious treats for your enjoyment, along with entertainment.

There will also be a couple of door prizes.
New board members are always needed as current members retire. It would be especially
good to have help with the organization of our book sales.
