It’s been both an honor and a privilege to support the Howard County Library System through the years, first fundraising through Evening in the Stacks and then being elected to serve on the Friends & Foundation Board of Directors beginning eight years ago. During that time, I served first as Donor Engagement Committee Chair, then as Vice-Chair, and now as Chair.
It’s also been both an honor and a privilege to work to support my very favorite Library System.
With your help and support, we’ve achieved an incredible amount over the past three years:
Simply stated, I love our library system.
Now more than ever, access to high quality public education for all ages is critical, and witnessing firsthand the many ways in which HCLS takes this mission to heart is inspiring. From On the Road to Kindergarten to the new Maker Space at Glenwood; from Undesign the Redline to Brave Voices, Brave Choices; from Teen Spaces to Battle of the Books; from the DIY Collection to the Art Collection - watching HCLS grow and thrive even in the most challenging of times is such an extraordinary gift.
Thank you so very much for the opportunity to serve as the leader of Friends & Foundation of HCLS.
I’ll end back where I began: it has truly been an honor and a privilege.
Yours in gratitude,
Mickey Gomez | she/her/hers
Friends & Foundation of HCLS Board of Directors
