Taking place this evening at the Old Lyme Country Club, this year’s 16th annual Bookworm Ball with the theme of ‘An Evening in Paris,’ promises guests a magical night of music and dancing, French food and wine, and live and silent auction excitement, all in support of a beloved community resource – the Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library. A few tickets are still available — stop by the library during the day or just show up at the event this evening!
A recent auction highlight is the generous donation by renowned artist Leif Nilsson of a 50 percent discount towards the purchase of one of his highly prized prints or paintings.
More than a library, this historic landmark is a gathering place for more than borrowing books. It’s a community hub where discussions, lectures, movies, music and stories bring people together to share ideas, be enlightened and entertained. It’s a classroom, an art gallery, a place to read a printed paper, or use the free Wi-Fi to read it online; have a passport renewed, learn mah-jongg, join a book group, or attend a lawn concert.
The Friends of the Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library is a non-profit organization that pledges to raise more than $40,000 annually to buy new books and bring educational programs for tots, teens and adults to the library.
Shoreline Web News, owner of LymeLine.com, is proud to be a major sponsor of the Bookworm Ball.
