Neilson Hays Library Annual General Meeting 2018
March 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This year’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday March 27 at 10 a.m.at our newly restored and renovated library.
All these works wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donations of many organizations, individuals, library members, and successful crowd-funding efforts.
We would like to thank all our members for bearing with all the inconveniences of the construction work during the restoration period, and thus the interruptions to the usual functioning of the library services.
As a related matter, to better optimize the use of the library’s garden area and parking space, landscaping work has already begun and is expected to be completed by July. We thus ask for your continued understanding and to please bear with us for a few more months.
Despite the then ongoing restoration work, many of our regular activities continued to be well attended, from Saturdaystorytelling, special children’s events, to the two record-breaking revenue- making book sales.
We have also re-established cafe-operation relationship with the British Club, to be resumed in July when the garden landscaping work is expected to be finished.
On another happier note, we are pleased to inform you of the successful launch and completion of the Neilson Hays Young Writers’ Award last year. It has been very well received by the schools, the writing community, the media, and the general public. This has greatly exceeded our expectation.
We also joined with Bangkok Edge in January this year providing activities at the Kids Corner as well as story time from our past Young Writers Awards Winners and our volunteers which turned out to be very popular amongst the children accompanying their parents.
There are some changes regarding our board members and staff.
This year we said goodbye to four board members, and welcome five fantastic new members.
Our librarian, Khun Chompoo has left, we wish her all the best and we are in process of finding a suitable one.
Khun Meow, our assistant librarian is on maternity leave and will return in June. She had delivered a healthy baby boy.
We value your support and hope to see you at the AGM.
President, Neilson Hays Association Board.
