During the Bookmark Ball 2 weekends ago, a special quilt raffle premiered and will conclude at the Friends’ Summer Book Sale on Saturday, June 11, 2011.
The quilt pictured here is the creation of Friends members Mary Ellen Berman and Charlotte Halloran, and will be displayed at the branch library until the second day of the Summer Book on June 11, 2011, when the winning raffle ticket will be drawn at 3pm.
Raffle tickets are available for sale throughout the month of May until Saturday, June 11th, at $2 per ticket or 3 tickets for $5. Tickets may be purchased in person at the branch library’s circulation desk or via mail by sending a check made out to “Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library” care of the Hyde Park Branch Library.
All proceeds of the quilt raffle will benefit the Friends’ musical art programs for all ages at the branch library throughout the year.
