A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for our 2nd annual Novel Night on Friday at the new Sam Gary Branch!
A wonderful time was had by all, hundreds of crafts were created from recycled books, amazing desserts by Monica Kadillak were consumed, books were donated (and traded), prizes were won, and, most importantly, Fresh City Life My Branch programming at the Denver Public Library was supported! Special thanks to these sponsors:
Monica Kadillak, for her wonderful desserts--look for more cooking classes with Monica in the months to come!
Colorado author BK Loren, who donated several signed books
Several local crafters who donated their time
DPL staff and volunteers who made the whole night happen!
