The Wiscasset Library Friends invite everyone to bring summer to a close with their wonderful annual party, Bands for Books, this Labor Day, September 5th. Bands for Books is the band’s main annual fundraiser and is designed to be a fun event for the whole community.

The music, provided by the Salty Dogs, is guaranteed to make you want to dance. Playing music from the 1960s, this band from Maine is a regular at summer gigs on the green and a real crowd pleaser.

There will be a cash bar and delicious bites and treats, prepared by Friends members. This year’s silent auction items will include popular favorites like a case of wine and Maine craft beers, as well as exciting new offerings. Each ticket holder will also be given a raffle ticket to win a Wiscasset restaurant gift voucher.

Bands for Books will once again be held at Seafield Farm, home of Katharine Martin-Savage, 191 Indian Road, Wiscasset. Hours are 5-7 p.m. and tickets are always $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Reserve priced tickets in advance by emailing Friends of Wiscasset at [email protected], or call the Library at 882-7161. Please plan to come support the fantastic library and enjoy the fun.
