One of the things I’ve learned from moving around a great deal is that the best way to meet new people is to get involved with a group. I’ve volunteered for the alumni associations for both my university and my sorority, and immediately signed up to volunteer at my son’s school library when he started kindergarten here a few weeks ago.
Little did I know that it would lead to an even bigger position. I was contacted last week about getting involved with the Friends of the University Park Public Library. They needed board members, and did you say you work in marketing? So I’m now the communications co-chair, responsible for reviving a newsletter to dues-paying members and overall support of the local library. I’m excited to get started!
