The Friends of Pendleton County Library elected a new board of directors, reviewed 2021 accomplishments and previewed plans for 2022 at its annual meeting Feb. 12.
Elected to two-year terms were Madeline Hoover (president), Rhonda Nash (vice president), Darlene Bokelman (secretary) and Trent Reid (treasurer). Hayley Craig, Nan Goland, Mike Rechlin and Terry Lee Ryan were elected to serve two-year terms on the board.
Reid reported that the Friends gave $3,311 to the library in 2021 to help fund new books, summer reading activities and other library projects. Becky McConnell, library director, shared a power point highlighting library activity and programs, such as the summer reading program for young readers and library improvements. New furnishings for reading areas, upgraded roof gutters and decorative lamp posts were funded by donors.
