2008 Friends & Family Weekend
November 1 and 2
The FOL’s third annual Friends & Family Weekend drew more than 400 patrons to a variety of events including a performance by silent clown Chip Bryant for small children, a film showing of “The Jungle Book” with free popcorn and beverages, a paperback swap where hundreds of books changed hands, and a lecture by noted film critic and author William Wolf. The Friends also raffled a free bookbag of children’s books and conducted a children’s art contest in which younger patrons were encouaged to illustrate a scene from their favorite book. These illustrations were displayed in the Children’s Room.
