This coming year the Friends will fund 6 Friday night concerts and 2 Living Room Concerts. We are also funding a summer outdoors concert this August 16th which will feature the band 3D Rhythm of Life.
Meeting Rooms, Performance Space
Last year we funded the installation of new flooring in the meeting rooms; this year, we paid for the installation of a new audio-visual system on June 11th by Audio Cafe. We are also funding the renovation of the backstage storage and kitchen.
Children's Events and Programs
We committed to funding the photo booth for the summer carnival, which attracted more than 500 visitors, and paying for materials needed for the programs which will be held in the brand-new Francis Greaney outdoor learning garden, which was built this year as an extension to the children's library.
Good News! Our volunteers have cleaned and restocked the continuous book sale shelves, and are ready to open on July 6th. Thank you so much for your patience!
However, we will not be accepting book and media donations yet, until we are able to confirm that there are enough volunteers to bring them in, sort and display them. Watch this space as we get organized and ready, we'll let you know when it's time to bring your dontions into the library.
The Friend Continuous Sale Opening on July 6th!
