Junior Friends of the Pomona Public Library Guidelines

Junior Friends of the Pomona Public Library Guidelines

Junior Friends is a youth volunteer group at the Pomona Public Library created so kids will become helpful and engaged members of their community.

In order to become a member, you must complete the application. You can acquire an application from the Children’s Reference Desk or at a Friend of the Pomona Public Library sale or event. Junior Friends who successfully complete a year of membership will receive a free t-shirt.

Meetings are held as announced in the Library Conference Room of the Pomona Public Library.

You are in charge of keeping track of your own volunteer hours. You may use hours from Junior Friends related services for other clubs, but you are responsible for completing their hour sheets. Friends Board Members will sign your completed volunteer time sheet.

You may be excused from meetings or an event you signed up for, if you have a legitimate excuse. Just make sure you let the president know by telling them in person, email, or leaving a phone message. You must state the activity you will be missing and your legitimate excuse.

To remain active in the club, you must complete the following:

  • At least three volunteer hours every 6 months
  • Two functions per year

Elections for Junior Friends Board are in July. The positions available are president, vice president, secretary, historian, two publicity chairpersons, and sergeant at arms. The year starts in September and ends in June.

49th Laura Ingalls Wilder Gingerbread Sociable

What fun everyone had!  The children were smiling, participating in the square dancing and crafts and during the very entertaining Cowboy Bob show.  Costume prizes were given and real gingerbread cookies, shaped and decorated gingerbread men.  Thanks so much for our volunteers who helped: Rebecca Ramos and her team, Leslie Albert who arranged the B & B Square Dancers from Rancho Cucamonga, Evelyn Perrine who found a baker who would make the decorated gingerbread cookie men, and to Beverly MacCallum, Marina Medina, Eunice Russell, who helped with Costume judging and refreshments and more.  Thanks too to the Library staff, Muriel Spill, Pat Lambert, and Crystal who do so much for the Library every day.  We had a good turnout and very happy children and parents.  Thank you everyone; enjoy the picture album.

Gwen Robinson, President, Friends of the Pomona Public Library.
