The Friends of the North Manchester Public Library will be raffling off two quilts: Cass Rish's hand-stitched queen-sized “Jack in the Books” and 52 by 59-inch “One Fish, Two Fish,”a Dr. Seuss-inspired pattern created by an anonymous donor. Raffle tickets for each quilt will cost $5.00 each or 5 for $20. They will be sold at the library, and the winning tickets will be drawn at 5:00 on Saturday, November 4, following the Friends' Fall Book Sale at the library. Money raised from ticket sales will help fund the programs, projects and purchases that make the library such a vital center of community activities for all ages.
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in a comfortable and easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
