On Friday evening, November 30, Cary Library celebrates Holiday Festival Night. The Library invites all members of the community to stop by to enjoy delicious refreshments, live music, and fun!
Again this year Cary Library will present the Holiday Author Book Fair, a display and book sale by several local indie authors. This year’s featured authors will include Peter Shapiro, author of Ghosts on the Red Line and The Trail of Money, James L. Jones, author of Fall and Winter Bloom in the Solar Greenhouse, and Meg Muckenhoupt, author of Boston’s Gardens and Green Spaces. Local artist Judith Ellen Sanders will also have available for sale a selection of her coloring books and other creativity products... for ages 5 to 105. Take advantage of this fun opportunity to discover new books!
Holiday Festival Night at the Library also includes a silent auction, featuring the opportunity to bid on an array of gift baskets. Themes for the baskets will run the gamut from food preparation to fiction! This event is sponsored by the Friends of Cary Library. The Friends will also be selling copies of the new Friends of the Library book bag. All proceeds will benefit the programs and services provided by the Friends.
Celebrate Lexington's 300th Anniversary every day in 2013! Cary Library has created a 300th Anniversary commemorative calendar just in time for the holidays. Each page features a vintage image from the Edwin B. Worthen or Cary Library collections. Calendars will be on sale for $15.00 (cash or checks only) during Holiday Festival Night.
Festival Night favorites Julie Metcalf (fiddle) and Eric Eid-Reiner (keyboard) will again perform lively traditional and recently-composed folk tunes from around the world. This will be followed by a special performance by the Madrigal Singers. New this year, Ed the Wizard will also add to the fun!
So drop in at the Library from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. to chat with a local author, bid on a basket, purchase a calendar, or enjoy some great musical performances. Bring the family and celebrate the holiday season at the place where the whole community comes together.
