Friends of Wiscasset Library Fourth Bands for Books Fundraiser in September

Tickets Now Available at the Library

$20 advance purchase or $25 at the door

For the fourth year, Friends of the Wiscasset Public Library are planning a fun-filled evening to raise money for the Library. The Bands for Books event this year will take place on Sunday September 3 from 5-7 p.m. at Seafield Farm, a lovely and picturesque property in Wiscasset owned by Katharine Martin-Savage.

The event will feature live music by the Salty Dogs, with dancing encouraged. Sarah’s Café will provide food and a cash bar, and Leavitt and Parris of Portland and Marianmade Farm of Wiscasset will provide a large tent under which many of the festivities will take place. There will also be a raffle for a number of wonderful items including a sculpture, flower arrangements, a case of wine, and an airplane ride over coastal Maine.

Three area banks with branches in Wiscasset, First National, Camden National and First Federal Savings, are sponsoring the event along with Ames Hardware, Levitt and Parris and Ideal PortaJohns.  Other sponsors include Jenn Spaur and Katherine Martin-Savage.

The event committee chaired by Michelle Peele, includes Kate Curran, Cynthia Davis, Judy Flanagan, Katherine Martin-Savage, Wendy Ross, Jenn Spaur, Crissy Swartz, and Linda Winterberg.

The September party is the Friends of the Library’s largest event of the year and all of the proceeds go to the Wiscasset Library. Former contributions have been used for new lighting, a remodeled Used Book Room, and for upgrades in heating, air conditioning and carpeting. The Friends of the Library supports summer reading programs, as well as informative community programs and a book study group.

So, mark your calendars, get ready to have some fun, and take home some wonderful raffle items while helping the library.

For more information call Michelle Peele after 5 p.m. on 207-687-8212
