The Friends of Freeport Memorial Library hold election


At their recent annual meeting, the Friends of Freeport Memorial Library elected new officers to its Board of Directors. Jennifer Rechner, a long-time devotee, will be the next president, along with Daniel Vaggi acting as vice president, Marc Josloff, secretary and Judy Trujillo who will be appointed trustee. Larry Gumbs, who has been president for almost 20 years, has stepped down and will now serve as the club’s treasurer. All officers in the organization will serve a three-year term.

The Friends are an all-volunteer organization whose goal is to support and expand the Library’s services while also advancing the community’s cultural and informational needs. 

“I look forward to working together to make a positive impact for the Library and the Freeport community,” Rechner said. Following the election, Ms. Rechner presided over the remainder of the meeting. 

The next “Friends” event will be held on Dec. 11 at 2:30 p.m. The Perfect Pitch Project will present a concert inspired by Art Blakey’s jazz messengers. These Grammy Award winning artists, who have played all over the world, will provide a one-of-a-kind musical experience.

The Friends of Freeport Memorial Library will have its next meeting on Jan. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at 144 W Merrick Rd. All are invited to participate. Contact for more information.
