The Friends of the Franklin Public Library are hosting a Cocktails and Canvas painting class at the library this Thursday, August 4 at 6:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served. Participants should bring their own beverage of choice.
Gail Tefft will guide us step by step to create this summery painting, which is also on display at the library. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!! Gail is a gifted teacher who will draw out the artist in all of you.
This fundraiser is $30.00 per person ($5 discount for current members of the Friends). Sign up as soon as possible so we can accommodate everyone with snacks and materials. This event is for adults only.
Our 21st Annual Quiltathon is this Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day. This long standing annual fundraiser is brought to you by the Friends of the Library, and the dedication of many long-time volunteers.
Stop by the library to watch an interactive quilting demonstration, practice quilting, and browse a collection of beautiful quilts and handmade accessories for sale. Purchase tickets at the front desk for a chance to win one of the quilts. The winner is drawn on May 9, and need not be present.
Thin It To Win It was a 6-week weight loss challenge, with weekly weigh-ins and monetary accountability, held at the library from January 9 through February 20. It was a fun way to motivate our community to lose weight, receive accountability, and help raise money for the library. The participant who lost the most weight at the end of the 6-week challenge, based on percentage of weight lost, won half of the total amount collected.
The winner of the 2016 Thin It To Win It challenge was Denise Brosius, who lost 9% of her body weight. Congratulations Denise! The other participants lost from 1% to 4% of their total body weight. We are so proud of everyone who participated! Thank you for supporting your library, and keep up the good work!
