FOCL Awards Nominations

FOCL has started to receive nominations for our 2017 annual awards. If you have been considering nominating your group or an individual, now is the time to move the nomination to near the top of your “to do” list. To be considered, nomination submissions must be postmarked by April 10th. It sounds like a lot of time but you know sometimes things get in the way. Don’t miss out this opportunity to recognize a Friend or your Friends group.

Nomination forms are available here. For questions contact Carl Nawrocki at or 860 859-1641.

What is FOCL?

The Friends of Connecticut Libraries (FOCL) is a non-profit organization consisting of local Friends groups, organizations and individual members who believe that libraries are an essential resource for the citizens of our State. 

We provide newsletters, workshops, conferences and visitations that support Friends functions such as fundraising, sponsorship of educational and entertainment programs, advocacy for their library, and in-library volunteer work like shelving and data processing.

Become a member

As a member of FOCL you become a part of a community of Friends groups, as well as individual, institutional, and corporate supporters, throughout Connecticut.
