Please join the Friends of the Madison Public Library at their annual Gala 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 19, at the library, 39 Keep Street.

A variety of hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Catering Department of the Thursday Morning Club, wine and beer will be served. Sunnyside Jazz will return by popular demand. A 50/50 raffle will be held. Invitations have been mailed to all residents in the Friends’ database; however, all are welcome to make reservations. Invitations are also available at the front desk of the library, as well as additional raffle tickets.
We will honor Carmine Toto, Jr., Carmine Toto III and the Toto family for their generous support of our largest fundraiser,Touch a Truck, and for their contribution to the community.
