Michael Jones - President 

"I am a part of the Friends because I believe in the importance of literacy in the lives of citizens and the role of the library as an educational and cultural resource for the community. As a former librarian with the Mississauga Library System, serving with the Friends allows me to continue to contribute to the delivery of library service. After I left the Library, my wife suggested that I volunteer for the Friends because of my past experience. It was very good advice."


Shanaz Fancy - Secretary / Membership

" I joined the Friends of the Mississauga Library Board in 1997.  It has been a very rewarding experience to support our mission to promote literacy and extend the programs and services of the Mississauga Library System within the community."
