Pemberton Library's Twenty-First Annual Event
What started twenty-one years ago in a local home as a way to
raise funds for our then tiny cabin-like library has grown to be,
perhaps, the fundraising event of the season in Pemberton. The
Friends of the Library hosts the event, which features wine and
cheese (plus other great appetizers) a live auction and a silent
auction. Julie Kelly leads the group that puts on this affair,
which will be held in the Community Centre Great Hall and Library
at 7:00 pm on Friday the 22nd. This is a night not to be missed,
where many Pembertonians spend a little extra effort, dress in
their best, and come out in support of a library that many of us
are rightly proud of. For such a small community, our library is a
thriving community hub. This, in large part is due to the
leadership and support of our Friends of the Library. And this
evening is a way to support them...and have quite a lot of fun
while we do. Truly this is not to be missed.
Not Just Wine and Cheese
The Friends of the Library expect over 200 people to attend this
event, which starts at 7:00, so do get your tickets in
Tickets are available at the library and cost $20. Proceeds, of
course, go to raising funds for all the little extras that make the
Pemberton library truly special.
Past attendees stress the social part of this event, so expect
to have a lot of fun while raising money for your library and
supporting those volunteers who work so hard to make the Pemberton
Library an amazing, vibrant hub for our community. With live music,
live and silent auctions as well as the wine and cheese, there is a
lot going on this evening.
