Friends of the Library Website Makover: losaltoslibraryfriends.org had a good-looking website already, but it was created from custom code that was difficult for the volunteers to update. Just launched in November 2016, the new website lets the new web team update the book sale dates and post the quarterly newsletter on their own.
Renew Membership Online
The Friends got a PayPal account and I added a membership form that lets members renew their membership online then pay by PayPal. For those who prefer traditional membership renewal, folks can still print the form and mail in a check. Tip: behind the scenes, the Friends worked to develop new procedures to manage memberships paid for by PayPal. The form keeps a record of submissions that can be exported to Excel, to aid in matching payments with people.
