Our 13th annual “Bucks for Books” Dinner and Auction is just around the corner – November 10, 2018, at Foxchase Golf Club in Stevens.


Could you donate a bottle of wine for our Wine Table ($20 or plus value)? Would your business be interested in an ad for our program booklet?  Have you seen an unusual or unique item or maybe some functional item that would be a hit for the auction?  Do you enjoy cooking or entertaining and will sponsor a dinner party?  Are we missing anything?   Looking in all corners for ideas to create a successful and fun dinner/auction event!  And, better get your ticket ($40) at the library or from any board member.  The Foxchase dinner menu sounds scrumptious!


Contact me, any board member, or leave your message with a staff member at the library.  You can also reach us through the Contacts link above and find detailed information about the Event and donations through the Events link.


Waiting to hear from you,

Margaret Harting, President

Libraries are free….except they really aren’t.  Please help us continue to fund the library with all it’s many services to the community.






The Friends’ donations of $100,000 for the capital campaign and $25,000 for the Tranquility Garden for the new library are in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
