Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The official donor form was recently released and made its debut at the October 18, 2018 City Council Meeting.  Friends of the Brisbane Library (FOBL) Co-President Wendy Towle walked the City Council through the various donor levels and also talked about how FOBL is currently doing a call for artwork for the donor wall (deadline for artwork submissions is January 6, 2019).  See below for more information, both images can be clicked to enlarge.  Reserve your spot on the donor wall today and drop off your form to the Library, or you can donate online here (you will still need to fill out a form so FOBL can receive your desired inscription). If you have questions about either of these items, please contact FOBL at wall@fobl.info.

It helps guide staff in carrying out the Council's decisions.  2.) It helps communicate to staff and the Community how resources will be allocated in the upcoming two years throughout the City.  3.)  It allows standards to be set so that the City can see whether it is reaching its service delivery goals.  To read the City’s 2018-2020 Budget online, which is also a searchable PDF, please click here.
