From 1991 to 2017, the Friends of the Libraries held their annual meeting of membership accompanied by a lecture in January. Always open to the public, the meeting became a lecture and reception in 2018 — an opportunity to celebrate the Friends' achievements and to hear from Libraries staff, UW faculty and experts in the community. Past speakers include Nancy Pearl, Michael Collins and Sandi Doughton.
