Happy New Year! News from the Library Foundation
Back by popular demand, the Safety Harbor Library Foundation kicks off 2016 with the Christiana Drapkin Band, with a joyous romp through jazz standards by Duke Ellington, one of most influential jazz masters of all time. The show is Thursday, January 28, with a Salute to Duke Ellington at 7:00 pm and refreshments at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10.00. All proceeds go toward the Foundation’s capital campaign, Let’s Build a Story, a 20/20 Vision, to raise funds for a second floor meeting room. Tickets may be purchased prior to the show at the Library or at the door, if still available. Only 100 open seating tickets sold.
A Citywide Book Club, “Safety Harbor Reads,” sponsored by the Foundation begins in February and culminates in April with a variety of special events all related to our wacky, but wonderful state of Florida. The selected book for the Citywide Read is Alligators in B Flat, by Jeff Klinkenberg. Read events begin with a Meet the Author on Thursday, February 4, 6:30 pm.
The Foundation is sponsoring Treasures of the Harbor, honoring a community volunteer that goes above and beyond to make our city a special place. The Treasure winner will be announced April 14, at the Foundation’s Key Lime Pie Fiesta. To qualify as a Treasure, a person must reside in Safety Harbor and should not hold public office. Applications can be found by visiting: http://www.safetyharborlibraryfoundation.org on the event page.
Good going, library Foundation! Love the prospect of the musical event on Jan. 28 AND the key lime pie fiesta on April 14. Will support your efforts.
