North Enders Enjoy Library Holiday Party

By Patricia Sabbey

The Friends of the North End Library delivered holiday sparkle to the neighborhood at the recent celebration at the library. Musical entertainment was provided by the “The Joneses”, a local duo who perform at various functions in the North End and around the state. In addition to the music, a complimentary luncheon of favorite Italian dishes, including lasagna, meatballs, ravioli and pizza, was served to the very appreciative attendees.

The Friends set up a membership table to process Friends’ membership renewals and to welcome any new members. A festive Giving Tree with a range of items from the librarians’, Jennifer’s and Alyson’s, wish list gave people the opportunity to give back to the Library by “purchasing” items that will enhance the library experience. The Giving Tree will remain in the library until the end of December if anyone would like to drop by the library to donate.

A special thank you goes out to Jean Casale, the event Chairperson, and to the Friends’ volunteers for a successful event. Deep appreciation is also extended to Il Panino, Quattro, Golden Goose Market, Modern Pastry Shop, and Maria’s Pastry Shop for their support of this Friends of the North End Library event.
