It will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24th at 7:30 p.m.

Have you heard about the Friends of the Library’s biggest fundraiser of the year: the 2020 Christmas Wine Survivor raffle?

You could win as many as 60 bottles of wine, if you are the last name in the fish bowl. Entering this raffle is easy! Each entry is $20 plus a $15 bottle of wine, there is also a chance to purchase one immunity ticket for an additional $10.

Tickets are on sale until Nov. 28th at the Library or through any Friends of the Library member. We will livestream the elimination draws starting Monday, Nov. 30th at 4 p.m. and every day after that until Saturday, Dec. 5th at 4 p.m.

You will have until 1 p.m. the day following being eliminated to buy back in. The proceeds of this raffle will be used to purchase additional books for the eLibrary.

A quick reminder about tomorrow night’s (Oct. 16th) Doc Talk at the Library. Join us for “Marley” award-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald’s documentary on Bob Marley.

Follow Marley’s life, including his time with the Wailers, his struggle being mixed race, his music, romantic life, and role in the Rastafari movement.

We will show this at the Library, so you will have to bring your own snacks!

Alicia Tate is back with Meditation Night on Tuesday, Oct. 20th at 7 p.m. Alicia will teach you meditation practices that you can do anytime, anywhere. Come and reset yourself during this most stressful of times. Everyone is welcome!
