FOLUSA and Paula Poundstone Form National Partnership To Raise Awareness About Library Friends

Emmy-award winning comedian Paula Poundstone has been named national spokesperson for Friends of Libraries U.S.A. (FOLUSA), a national organization which provides resources, services, and networking opportunities for Friends, Trustees, and library Foundations across the country to increase and enhance their efforts on behalf of libraries of all types. The "Wait, Wait…Don't Tell Me!" panelist, mother of three, and author of There's Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say (Harmony Books, a division of Random House, with foreword by Mary Tyler Moore) will lend her name, voice, and humor to help Friends groups around the country promote themselves and their libraries.

"There I was in another unbalanced relationship," begins Emmy-award winning comedian Paula Poundstone in a new public service announcement, which can be see below and online at YouTube along with a 15 second version. Permission is granted for Friends of the Library groups to imbed these videos on their websites to promote the Friends to their local communities.
