Matt Rosseter provided today's "Member Minute".  Asked to speak to his best and worst jobs to-date, he listed his current job as a residential mortgage broker as his favorite so far.  Worst was the time he spent as a teenager working for the City of Two Harbors as a filler of pot holes.  Apparently his strong work ethic and accomplishments were at odds with the general tenor of things there and he was asked to slow down and not get so darn much done!
Our speaker today was Valerie Weiss with the Ramsey County Library Friends organization.  This group was initially formed in 1979 and has had a very significant, positive impact on the Ramsey County Library system since its inception.  Their mission is to support, strengthen and advocate for the system as well as to foster a sense of community.  In 2022 they were able to make over $100,000 in grants as a result of their fundraising efforts. While the majority of library funding comes through the state, this additional source of revenue allows the library system to offer more amenities and programs.
