“Books and Buns” for FG Library Foundation capital project: success!

A report from Colleen Winters, FG Library Director, about the fundraising dinner that was held October 27 at the UCC church: 
Last night’s event was a huge success by any definition. We took in $2,190 in ticket sales and donations.  We served approximately 155 people.  Many people commented as they were leaving on what a lovely event it was….the food, the ambience and all those library supporters.
The event proceeds will go toward the FG Library Foundation’s capital campaign.  The goal of the campaign is to raise $250,000 for furniture and equipment for the Library.  See more about this campaign at the Foundation website
Lots of card carrying Friends of the Library attended.  We thank all the volunteers who helped and especially the owner and staff of Maggie’s Buns for their work and donation of food.  Every library needs a Foundation, too!
