SWB Library Friends at Snowbird Roost

The Friends of the Southwest Branch Library Foundation hosted a table at the February 9th Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce Snowbird Roost, held at the Perdido Bay United Methodist Community Center.

Friends Board member & volunteer Mary Jo McLean recruited volunteers Jim & Mary Ayers, and Jeannette & Bill Phillips who greeted more than 500 winter visitors, who perused local vendors’ wares and free offerings. Each family received Friends pens & pencils with Friends name & logo, coupons for $1 off any item purchased from the Boutique as well as the various flyers. For $2 a delicious hot lunch made by Chef Paul was served while local musician Joe Occhipinti provided cool jazzy music. Two lunch seatings were scheduled to accommodate the crowds, after which prizes were raffled; The Friends donated a Friends tote filled with promotional goodies as well as a few books from The Friends Boutique and various flyers containing information about the Friends, the library and library card applications.

The next and last Snowbird Roost will be on Thursday, March 8th. For more photos of the Snowbird Roost, visit this link on the Perdido Bay UMC website.

Thanks to the Friends volunteers who greeted the snowbirds and also to the Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce for coordinating this opportunity to introduce The Friends of the Southwest Branch Library to our winter visitors.
