Roscoe Library hosts Artfully Yours Sept. 22

ROSCOE—The Roscoe Branch of the North Suburban Library District (NSLD) is in need of a physical expansion to meet the growth of the community. A fund-raising campaign is now under way to raise the necessary funds to furnish the new 6,070-square foot addition that will include an expanded children’s department and a local history room.

The Roscoe Library Expansion Project Committee is hosting “Artfully Yours,” a wine-tasting and hors d’oeuvres event, featuring a silent and live art auction. There will be theme baskets as well for the auction. Mimi Murphy, a local celebrity, has graciously agreed to host the event, to be held at 7 p.m., Sept. 22, at the NSLD—Roscoe. The address is 5562 Clayton Circle, Roscoe.

The committee chose to feature the pieces of local artists in a silent auction. This will give our locally-talented artists an opportunity to showcase their talents. People are being asked to consider donating a piece of art to the auction. This would be the perfect time to share that “one-of-a-kind” piece to benefit a worthwhile cause.

For more information or to donate a piece of art, contact the auction chairmen Gayle Haab, a Roscoe art teacher, at (815) 742-1331 (cell), or Terry Peterson, a patron of the arts, (815) 623-8131 (answering machine).
