The official position adopted in 1990 by the League of Women Voters of Glendale / Burbank says the chapter supports the work of volunteer organizations that assist with library activities and that encourage community involvement in library affairs.

In other words, the chapter firmly supports the work of the Friends of the Glendale Public Library and the Friends of the Burbank Public Library.

Thank you to the local chapter for organizing candidate forums and voter registration drives, for providing nonpartisan voting information, for helping to place voter information materials in our library facilities, and of course for being a strong supporter of our community libraries!

Thank you also to the local chapter for inviting Friends of the Glendale Public Library President Elise Kalfayan to its annual membership meeting. I had a great time and learned a lot about the appreciation the league has for the vital role of community libraries. Also, I enjoyed “Friends” networking with Tom Carson, outgoing President of the chapter, who also happens to be Treasurer of the Friends of the Burbank Public Library.

Congratulations to former League of Women Voters of Glendale / Burbank chapter President Chris Carson, who has just been elected President of the National League of Women Voters!

Congratulations also to Mary Dickson, who is incoming President for the League of Women Voters of Glendale / Burbank.

Check out the league’s website and Facebook page and consider joining this worthy organization. Of course, they’d want you to join the Friends as well!

Thanks and Congratulations, League of Women Voters Glendale / Burbank Chapter!
