Current and prospective members of the Friends of the Ferndale Library are invited on August 26 to fall down the rabbit hole into the library courtyard where music, hors d’oeuvres, henna artists, flamingo croquet and lots of surprises await. This Mad Hatter’s themed party features a cash bar with signature craft cocktails by Valentine Vodka and more. This will be a fun and funky celebration of the Ferndale library and of the classic Alice in Wonderland novels by author Lewis Carroll.
Most of all, this excellent summer evening gather will be a chance for the Friends of the Ferndale Library to thank current members for their support and an opportunity to invite new members to join the Friends.
“Being a Friend (of the Ferndale Library) is about connecting with people,” said Kevin Deegan-Krause, former president of the Friends. “It’s about supporting the library and advocating for education and culture in an environment where its value is often overlooked! The more ‘Friends’ we have, the more we can do to make our community a better place.”
Admission to the Mad Hatter Party is free for current Friends members, and new members can join online, here for only $20. The Ferndale Area District Library is located at 222 E. 9 Mile Rd .Please join us for literary fun, meeting fellow book lovers, and dancing under the stars. There will be excellent photo opportunities at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party so wear a hat, any hat, to fit right in among your wonderland Friends.
“Becoming a Friend is one of those decisions you’ll never regret,” said current member Katherine Siebenaler. “You get to be a part of a community of people who value knowledge and culture, you support an institution that adds real-dollar value to your home and neighborhood, and you’ll be proud of all the extra books and movies and music and programming that your membership helps pay for. Plus the member appreciation party is a pretty great bonus!”
