Our very dedicated President of the DeLand Friends of the Library has been named Volunteer
of the Month!! Congratulations to Louise Caccamise!! Louise has faithfully served on the
DeLand Friends Board of Directors for several terms, She was immensely instrumental in the
planning and building of our new Friends Book Store at the library and gives many hours in
helping there as well. Her time spent at the library aiding in many ways, and time spent at her
computer at home with Friends’ business, can not be counted in hours. Louise, You are

and knowledge, your kind patience and your never ending friendship.

As we are now past Easter, we realize summer will
soon be here. In Florida, first the summer weather
arrives, and then the season itself shows up on the
calendar. But after a rather cool winter, some may
be more pleased with warmer days this year.
A change of season will bring summer programs to
the library for both children and adults. Keep
abreast of the many opportunities that await you,
via our newsletter, the monthly printed Library
Happenings, the Library website and Friends of the
Library website. You will now find the Friends
with their own Facebook page for the first time. As
you walk through the library lobby, you will notice
the television screens hanging over the area near
the checkout line at the circulation desk telling of
current library activities available to all.
No matter what your interests, you will find a
wealth of material available at your library, both in
materials to be checked out and on the computer
and internet databases.
If you are a member of the Friends, your membership dues and the money you donate is used for
these materials which are always benefitting someone. It is a wonderful thought to realize that a
small donation reaches so many lives as the purchased materials quietly circulate. We want each
of you to know how much you accomplish and how
much we appreciate your continued interest and

your support.
When visiting the library, remember to also visit
our Friends monthly book sales in the library
auditorium and our Friends of the Library Bookstore, open Monday through Friday, 9:30-4:30.
Bargains wait in both places, and all the profits
benefit the library.
Happy Reading,
Louise Caccamise
