On Friday of the Valentine's Day weekend, our local Friends group hosted a social gathering at the library to publicize the organization and, we hoped, generate new membership.
Chocolate goodies were plentiful -- cookies and cake and fudgy bars (referred to here in the Scandinavian Midwest as "barss").
I love that last photo -- L, a long-time library volunteer, is camera shy, but she has such a great smile. Let's see it up close:
In her other life she is a professional fund-raiser; we are so lucky to have her talents.
There was lots of socializing and laughter.
Besides the joining and the volunteering and the promoting of the library, the Friends managed to have a pretty darned good time, too.
A successful event all around!
