Here’s a great article from IN Chartiers Valley magazine regarding the tree festival:

The antiques appraisal event was a tremendous success, with some participants finding out they had treasures in the attic worth thousands! Others, weren’t so lucky, but everyone had a great time and we will be sure to hold this event again in the future! If you are interested in participating a future antiques or any of our events, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up for our mailing list on the home page.
It’s hard to see in the photos below, but it’s glaringly apparent in the library that the new, energy efficient window film donated by the Friends has created some shady librarians (in a good way!). Staff and patrons complained that overwhelming glare was creating an uncomfortable – and at times unworkable – situation in the library. So, the Friends were happy to fund their request for the solar film application to keep everyone from getting sunburn during their stay at the library. Your donations helped make this upgrade possible!

The good news is libraries are firmly embedded as part of the social framework. The bad news is people still aren’t sure what libraries should be in 2016.
When the library asks, the Friends provide. The money that comes from your support of the Friends from our fundraisers helped purchase this top-of-the-line kitchen set for the Children’s Department. So far, a day hasn’t gone by that it hasn’t been in use by the future home cooks and chefs of Bridgeville! Bon Appétit!
