The winter weather may have persisted outside, but spring was in the air at the Friends of the North End Library Spring Fling!
The friendly gathering at The Living Room was an opportunity for current members and new members alike to enjoy a fun evening, to raise funds for Friends’ events, and to fulfill the library’s wishes for items that ranged from beanbag reading chairs to gardening supplies. The talented duo, “The Joneses”, added musical excitement to the evening. The Living Room chef provided an ample and delicious repast including a charcuterie selection, passed hot appetizers, and a pasta station.
Representative Aaron Michlewitz, a staunch supporter of the library, addressed the group and spoke about the importance of branch libraries to communities. He praised the Friends of the North End Library for their ongoing support of this community resource.
For those still wishing to donate, the Friends will display a Giving Tree at the library. For those wishing to join the Friends of the North End Library go to www.FriendsNELibrary.org or ask for a membership application at the library’s circulation desk.
The time commitment as a member of the Friends is completely up to each person. Volunteer to help at one event, on an ongoing basis, or just pay your dues with no strings attached. The Friends are committed to working with Jennifer Hawes, Branch Librarian, to provide an enriching and enlightening library experience. Any and all support is welcome.
