Friends & Family Night at McMenamins Grand Lodge

On Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012, the Forest Grove Library Foundation will collaborate with McMenamins Grand Lodge to hold a Friends & Family Night. From 5 p.m. to closing, 50% of the sales of food and drink from the Ironworks Grill (inside the main Lodge) will be donated to the Library Foundation.

The Forest Grove Library Foundation’s newest capital campaign, entitled The Story Unfolds, is raising funds to purchase art, furniture and signage for the newly renovated wing of the library.

The remodel of the original section of the library provided a better space and building for library patrons, but lacked some final touches that would make it feel complete. With the completion of this new campaign, the Foundation will replace dated furniture from the original 1978 building; update the children’s section, making it welcoming and stimulating to promote early childhood love of reading and learning; update the Spanish language section and add art, including a unique piece by internationally renowned glass artist Ed Carpenter.

Join us for good food, friendly company and to benefit a great cause! We’ll be developing more community events to benefit the library over the next several months and would love to see throngs of library supporters at all of them.
