Discover Your Library
Annual Library Benefit
In May of 2016, the Library held its first Discover Your Library Annual Benefit. The successful, and well-supported fundraiser invited guests to explore the Library after hours, meet our staff, and discover for themselves why the Library is a valuable community resource. Guests participated in a trivia contest exploring all three levels of the Library.
Drinks and appetizers were served amid the book stacks on the main floor, while Smooth & Blue performed live music upstairs in the Children’s Department.
On the lower level, guests were invited to try their luck with a basket raffle and a 50/50 drawing. Baskets were donated by volunteers and local businesses, with over 40 baskets to choose from.
We would like to give a special thank you to the volunteers and supporters of our first annual benefit, which would not have been possible without them. With total receipts of $4,901, and a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation, the Library will offer Google Chrome Books for public use to circulate within the Library, and use for technology classes and coaching.
