Looking into the Crystal Ball
Friends of Selby Public Library hosts ‘Looking into the Crystal Ball’ fundraiser
No one can predict the future, but the Friends of Selby Public Library believe they can increase the odds for a brighter one when they host the third annual fundraiser, “Looking into the Crystal Ball,” 7 – 10 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 9, at Selby Public Library, 1331 1st Street.
The popular event has drawn hundreds of people over the last two years, resulting in rave reviews by those who enjoyed more than 30 performances by musicians, performance artists and belly dancers, as well as exhibits by artists and authors. While enjoying the entertainment and exhibits, guests also can sample tasty treats from some of Sarasota’s finest restaurants along with a full cash bar.
“Selby Library is a downtown institution that people love to support,” said Friends of Selby Public Library President Kenney DeCamp. “Not only is this event different from what you’d normally see in a public library, it’s also one of the most fun and unique events on Sarasota’s social scene. I’ve heard it called the People’s Gala!
Tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased at the Friends of the Selby Public Library Bookstore or $25 on the evening of the event at the door.
The Friends of Selby Public Library provide support for materials, services and programs not covered by Sarasota County taxes. The all-volunteer group also operates the Friends of Selby Public Library Bookstore, underwrites enrichment programs and advocates for libraries at local, state and national levels.
