Friends of the Library donate gala proceeds

The Friends of the Barbara Rose Johns Farmville/Prince Edward Community Library donated $8,000 in proceeds from the October 2019 Harvest Moon Champagne and Chocolate Gala to Morgan Hayes, Farmville Branch Manager and Megan Newcomb, CVRL Youth Services Specialist. The gala was the fifth such fundraising event held by the Friends.

During the November 2019 Friends’ board meeting, the board approved the donation of the proceeds. The monies will be used to bring special programs and services to children and adults. Past proceeds were used to bring storytellers, magicians, puppeteers and other special events to the Central Virginia Regional Library branches in Farmville and Buckingham.
