WINSTED — The ins and outs of being an author were discussed by local writers Todd Hiller and Jim Flynn Six at The Friends of the Beardsley and Memorial Library’s annual meeting on Saturday, Aug. 28.
Both Hiller and Six live in Colebrook, with Hiller the author of “Fire and Ivy,” while Six is the author of “Losing Lola.”
The annual meeting itself was a discussion of The Friends of the Beardsley and Memorial Library’s yearly activities.
The group is a separate 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to the development and maintenance of the library, providing supplemental funding to sponsor and support the library and its programs.
“As far as the state of the organization right now, we only have eight volunteers,” organization president Donna Boynton said. “We’re working with a skeleton crew. But I am very lucky. We have a competent group of volunteers who all help. But we need more people to help us. Especially since we want to get younger people to get involved with the library and pass this on to a new generation.”
“The organization is very crucial for ensuring that we can do everything the library has,” Library Director Karin Goodell said. “Their support for the library is very tremendous. They always raise at least $10,000 a year, which all goes back into the library’s services.”
