Thank-You Night

To thank those who donated to the Annual Appeal over the past year, the Brooks Memorial Library Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors of the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library will be hosting a special get-together at the library on Friday, September 21, 6-8PM.

Guests will be shown some of the new library resources that their donations have helped fund. The Fine Arts Room will be opened, and recent restoration work will be discussed. In the top floor Meeting Room, samples will be shown from our new video-streaming services – Kanopy and Acorn TV – available now to all our library cardholders. Come enjoy some popcorn and see how to sign up!

Ice cream, appetizers and beverages will be served on the Main Floor.

Invitations have been mailed. Please RSVP by September 15 so that we can plan accordingly.

Hope to see you there!
