Library Lovers’ Lottery
As part of the Joy of Art, the Friends are also holding the Library Lovers’ Lottery. If you join the Friends between now and February 23rd you will automatically be entered into the lottery (current members are automatically entered), which will also be announced on February 23rd. The prize is a beautifully framed mixed media work by Antje Sutton, titled “ A Little Bit Off the Top”. It is on display near the front desk of the library along with brochures for joining the Friends group.
