Friends of the Library first meeting, Liz Carpenter

Liz Carpenter was greeted by Jenkins Garrett as the guest speaker at the first Friends of the UTA Libraries meeting on Oct. 30, 1987. Lady Bird Johnson’s former press secretary was a popular journalist and had a new book to promote (Getting Better All the Time). More than 200 people attended the program and the reception. Ninety copies of Carpenter's book were sold, and the Friends group received good press coverage. The Friends of the UTA Libraries is a membership organization committed to enhancing the resources of the UTA Libraries for the benefit of students, faculty, and the community.
