Laura’s Library Artisans’ Market!!
The Friends of the Westbank Library are searching for Artists
who would like to be considered for participation in the Artisans’ Market to be
held on Saturday November 12, 2016 from 10am
-4pm. Please contact the Friends at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application. Photos as well as a detailed description of
your work will be required with the application. Submissions must be received no later than June
7, 2015 and artist selections will be completed by June 14th. The booth fee is $75 and we are requiring
that each vendor donate an item for a silent auction.
This is a fund-raising event and we hope it will continue as an annual community destination benefiting not only the Friends organization, but the local artisans and community.
Who are the Friends?
In 1985 a group of dedicated library supporters formed the Friends of the Westbank Library as a 501c3 non-profit organization. For years this group has actively raised thousands of dollars to purchase such things as the Mark Twain Statue, the Backyard Dragon, the Giving Tree, and the Bubble Machines, as well as to provide scholarships to exceptional teen library volunteers. While the goals of the Friends have remained consistent since its inception, the 2013 board adopted the goal of expanding the participation of the Westbank community within the Friends organization.
