Library Luminaries

June 11, 2022

Our 2022 Library Luminaries event was held on Saturday, June 11, 2022.
Many thanks to our extremely generous hosts and luminaries, donors, and trustee committee, all of who made this year’s event a great success!


Festival of Trees

Our annual Festival of Trees cocktail party takes place in the historic Wykeham Room, planned for the first Friday in December from 5 to 7 pm. While sipping wine and sampling hors d’ oeuvres provided by local restaurants, guests can bid on auction items, purchase a pouch ticket for a surprise gift donated by generous local businesses, or buy a decorated tree, wreath, or special item made and donated by our patrons and local residents. Postponed to 2022

 

The Children’s Holiday Sale is a popular Junior Library event which generally takes place the second week of December. This sale gives children an opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for family members at very reasonable prices. Patrons are asked for donations of small gift items, accessories, housewares and more to make the event a success. Consider designating a box where you can deposit those little gifts or items you receive throughout the year that you know you won’t really use- a box of soaps, a necktie that’s out of favor, candles, a redundant kitchen gadget — you get the idea. Then just bring them to the Junior Library after Thanksgiving. Thank you!
