What FORL funds: Roger's favorites
I always thought of the library as a place where members of the community could go to borrow books. You could browse the shelves for a title that catches your interest, or you could chase down a specific book you'd like to read. Even when I first talked to board members of Friends of the Rockridge Library, I still thought libraries were all about loaning out books. So I assumed FORL's main goal was to buy more books to put on the shelves at the Rockridge branch. I was wrong.
