A Novel Thank You!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for our 2nd annual Novel Night on Friday at the new Sam Gary Branch!

A wonderful time was had by all, hundreds of crafts were created from recycled books, amazing desserts by Monica Kadillak were consumed, books were donated (and traded), prizes were won, and, most importantly, Fresh City Life My Branch programming at the Denver Public Library was supported! Special thanks to these sponsors:

Monica Kadillak, for her wonderful desserts--look for more cooking classes with Monica in the months to come!

Thanks to everyone who attended, staffed, and volunteered at our first annual Novel Night (2012)! We were overwhelmed with the positive responses, and are already starting to plan for 2013!

From feasting on food donated by Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant to making over a dozen crafts with recycled books, Novel Night was lively and fun-filled--a great time was had by all! Many thanks to our sponsors: Rio Grande, King Soopers, Starbucks, Parisi, Ingram, Midwest Tape, Ceylon Pearl Tea, Tattered Cover, MoonDance Botanicals, HarperCollins, the DPL Friends Foundation, and Old Navy!
