Annual General Meeting and Friend of the Year Award

Every Fall, the Friends of the Library holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM). The gathering is a way for Friends to inform members of previous and future activities and connect with each other. The Friends also take this opportunity to celebrate and honour a Friend of the Year. The Friend of the Year Award is bestowed upon individuals or groups of individuals who show a generous contribution to the vision, mission and goals of the Friends of the Library and McGill University Library & Archives.

Congratulations to our Friends of the Year! Thank you for your support of and commitment to reading, research, libraries & McGill.
