FOTAGL publish a bi-monthly newsletter, The Library Insider, which is sent to all current members via mail or email.  We also place copies in our Book Nook (just inside the Library entrance) for library patrons to peruse and/or take home.  The newsletter keeps our members current on library changes, programs & events.  We publish issues in February, April, June, August, October and December.

As with all FOTAGL activities, the editor of our newsletter is a volunteer. For many years (including the 4 years she relocated to southern California), Mary Boyle designed and edited our newsletters.  Upon her resignation in 2018, Richard Lasiewski assumed the role of editor and is currently still filling that role.
