The Friends of the Southborough Library are holding a special fundraiser this month. The Old Fashioned Covered Dish Dinner will take place after Library hours on Monday, October 24th, 6:00 – 8:30 pm.

Adults are invited to bring a favorite dish to share with friends and neighbors. The event is geared to bring together adults from the community in a fun, social setting with food and music.

(Kids aren’t banned. But, the Children’s Room will be closed and no entertainment is planned for kids.) 

It’s a potluck, so each attendee/family is requested to pre-register and bring a dish. It is a fundraiser- so participants are asked to donate $5 per person. (It’s also a good opportunity to join the Friends or renew your membership.)

Funds from this evening will allow the Friends to continue to grow the list of programs, authors, guest speakers and complimentary passes to area museums and attractions that enrich our community life.

Beverages, paper goods and musical entertainment will be provided by the Friends.

Participants whose last names start with A through L are asked to bring an appetizer, salad or side dish. Those whose last names start with M through Z are asked to bring a main dish or dessert. (Each dish should be large enough to feed at least 8 people.)

If you plan to participate – please register, and let them know what dish you plan to bring. (The Friends won’t turn away late comers with surprise dishes – but knowing what people are bringing helps for planning purposes.)

Also be sure to share your contact information (email, text or phone). Sign up by emailing, calling Sandy Kiess at 508-494-5034 or filling out registration forms available at the Library.

For more information about this program the public may also call the Library at 508-485-5031 during open hours. (Today, Saturday, and Monday from 10-5.)
