ROSCOEThe 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 childrens department and a local history room.
The Roscoe Library Expansion Project Committee is hosting Artfully Yours, a wine-tasting and hors doeuvres 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 NSLDRoscoe. 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).
