Friends of PFPL welcomes new board member

 Friends of PFPL are excited to welcome Allison Knabb to our Executive Board.  Allison was elected Secretary by the general membership at the Friends annual meeting on October 10, 2013.

Allison Knabb

Allison is a graphic artist specializing in confectionary packaging.  A resident of Phillipsburg, Allison enjoys listening to audio books from the library during her commute.  Allison has been a dedicated supporter of the Library and the Friends, volunteering many hours at events.  “The creativity and experience that Allison has demonstrated in her activities with the Friends will be a tremendous asset to the Board,” said Sean Gornell, Friends president, “we are looking forward to working with Allison as we advocate for the Library in ways both traditional and new.”  

The Board also recognized the significant contribution made by outgoing Board member Dave Walker.   Dave has been a Friend of PFPL since 2010 and has been invaluable to the growth and success of the organization.  Dave will continue to work closely with the Friends to support the Library and its mission.

The Board formally welcomed Rosita Parker to her new role as one of three elected Directors of the Executive Board.  Board roles and duties were reconfirmed during the annual meeting.  Sean Gornell will continue as President, Sue Campnest will remain in the role of Vice President, while Nancy Makowski also continues her role as Treasurer.  Sue Flad and Barbara Hull will remain on the Executive Board as Directors until their terms expire at the next Friends of PFPL Annual Meeting.

Friends of PFPL would like to express sincere thanks to the Phillipsburg Free Public Library and its staff for their efforts and support.  Friends of PFPL is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization of Library volunteers and advocates who support our Library’s mission to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge and strengthen our community.  To find out how you can support literacy in your community, email us or call 908-454-3712
