Thank you to everyone who contributed in making this event such an amazing success.
Over 125 people attended the gala that included a live performance from Kayser Magic, a silent auction, wine and beer tasting as well as some elegant hors d’oeuvres from La cuisine Gimy. The night ended with an awesome party atmosphere thanks to DJ Marty. Guests were overheard saying how elegant and classy the Rockland branch looked and were amazed by its transformation.
The fundraising gala was held in part to support the Library’s programs for both adults and youth in our community. The star of the evening was the CoLab which was remodeled in 2018 to accommodate the programming needs of the Library as well as being a dedicated safe space for teens in our community to enjoy. The evening raised just over $5,800 (in profit) which will be used in part to repay the loan that was borrowed to remodel the drab, underused computer lab into the multi-functional dynamic room it is today. In fact the CoLab is so much more than a room it’s a place for people of our community to imagine, explore and be inspired.
