Thanks for a Successful Novel Night--Come to More Programs!

Thanks to everyone who attended, staffed, and volunteered at our first annual Novel Night (2012)! We were overwhelmed with the positive responses, and are already starting to plan for 2013!

From feasting on food donated by Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant to making over a dozen crafts with recycled books, Novel Night was lively and fun-filled--a great time was had by all! Many thanks to our sponsors: Rio Grande, King Soopers, Starbucks, Parisi, Ingram, Midwest Tape, Ceylon Pearl Tea, Tattered Cover, MoonDance Botanicals, HarperCollins, the DPL Friends Foundation, and Old Navy!

Best of all, Novel Night raised funds to help keep Fresh City Life My Branch adult cultural programs FREE! What kinds of programs? Ones like these, coming up this week:
