Happy 5th Birthday Friends of the Scotts Valley Library!

The Friends of the Scotts Valley Public Library is throwing itself a birthday party to celebrate all it has accomplished for the library in its first five years.

Come by and join us Wednesday, April 9, 7pm 

At the Scotts Valley Library 


In honor of last Fall’s Hops & Harvest Festival – which raised significant funds for the Friends of the Scotts Valley Library – the birthday party will feature beer tasting as well as wine and local food fare as samples for selections for next Fall’s Hops & Harvest Festival. All current Friends of the Scotts Valley Library are invited, and are encouraged to bring a friend to learn more about the group.

“We are carrying a lot of momentum, and we are excited to celebrate all of our accomplishments, as well as to toast exciting projects ahead. Anyone who has touched this group in the past five years is invited to join us in this celebration, and I encourage them to bring guests as we widen our circle of friends of the library,”
said Derek Timm, president of FSVPL.
