On behalf of the Patterson Library Board of Trustees and everyone who uses Patterson Library, I want to thank the community for its support in making our 2011 Barbecue and Benefit Auction a big success.
Every year this fundraiser, sponsored by the Patterson Society, raises the money we need to continue to offer children’s programs and great books for the rest of the year. This year we raised almost $13,000, which will allow us to provide story times to Westfield’s preschools, community story times on Wednesday mornings for children 2 to 5 years old, weekly baby story times on Tuesday evenings, and regular after school programs for all school-aged children.
Thank you to our many great volunteers who helped out, thank you to all of you who generously donated items to be auctioned, and thank you to everyone who bid high to raise money for Patterson Library.
Patterson Library Director
