The Old Forge Library’s annual luncheon, which in the past has been held in January, has been moved to Monday, February 10 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the library’s founding.
The luncheon will be held at the library at noon and is free of charge. The menu will include soup, sandwiches, beverages and a birthday cake baked by Trish Sehring, a multi-time winner of the library’s annual Sweetheart Bake-Off.
The event is held annually in recognition of the many services provided by the library, which have grown incredibly in the past century.
“The small group of community-minded people whose goal was to establish a community library 100 years ago, most likely had no idea that the collection of books they started with would today include movies, audio books, computer services, historical research, art exhibits, concerts, baking contests and a Bash. Our library is a prime example of how our community supports endeavors that benefit all,” said Paula Weal of the Friends of the Old Forge Library.
All are welcome to attend the event, however, for planning purposes reservations are recommended by February 4th. Anyone interested in attending can sign-up at the library or call (315) 369-6008. Anyone who would like to volunteer to help can call Weal at (315) 369-4435 by January 31st.
