Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library




Friends of the Year


Every November at the Friends Annual Meeting the Friend of the Year award is presented. This award is given to the person or persons whom the Board of Directors has voted as someone whose service has contributed significantly to the success of the Friends and who represents the embodiment of our mission of service and support to our branch Library and the community.

At the Friends Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast in the spring, the Friend of the Year is honored
