On November 8, 2001, fourteen people met at the Old Post Office and formed the Friends of the Wetumpka Library (FOWL). The group hit the ground running with a used book sale at Christmas on the Coosa that next month. After the State Library “weeded” our library of out-dated books, FOWL sponsored another book sale in March which made over $1800.
||Founding President Howard Peck was one of many volunteers who made the first big FOWL book sale such a success. The sale lasted two days and was held at the Old Post Office.|
Within the first year the group had over 90 members and was able to present the library with over $2,500 for new books and programming from its book sales.
Officers are elected in May and serve for two years. Officers as of May 2012 are as follows:
President: Fran Holland
Vice President: Programs: Deb McCarley
