Book Bites (Friends of the Library Fundraiser)

Join the Friends of the Library as we host an event celebrating the first ten years at Marshalltown Public Library’s new location. The event will be on Saturday, March 30 from 5-8 p.m. at Van Gogh’s (129 E Main St).  With paid admission, guests will nibble on a variety of book genre themed appetizers catered by Your Plate or Mine and enjoy complimentary beverages. Live music will provide entertainment while guests mingle and peruse a number of silent auction items. All funds raised will be used toward a new interactive space at the entrance of the library’s youth department. Examples of similar spaces can be found online at Everbright or Burgeon Group.

Membership forms and information about joining the Friends of Marshalltown Public Library can be found on the library’s website.

Silent Auction bids will be closed at 7:30 pm and items to be distributed that evening if possible. Presence not required to win. Payment by check or PayPal.
