Winners are announced in 2007 fundraiser for library

July 19, 2007

The Friends of the Library 2007 fundraiser offered ticket purchasers the opportunity to win a quilt, composed of blocks featuring books, that was made by Friends members. Second prize was a set of hand-stitched needlepoint pictures of Old Williamsburg.

The winners were drawn by entertainer Michael T at the conclusion of Washington County Reading Day on May 5 at Valley Mall.

Karin Nowack of Hagerstown won the quilt and Eleanor Walmsley won the needlework pictures. Nowack said this is the first thing she has ever won, adding that the real winners are the residents of Washington County, who will benefit from the materials and programs these funds support.

Friends of the Washington County Free Library is a voluntary, nonprofit organization dedicated to focusing public attention on library services and needs. The organization raises funds for special purposes, works to enhance the cultural and literary environment of the community, and encourages the giving of gifts, memorials and endowments for the benefit of the library. It relies on membership dues and contributions for its basic revenues and on members' time and energy for help with programs and projects.
