On Sunday, September 16 from 4-7 pm the Friends of the Johnston Public Library will host their second annual Art in the Barn fundraiser to benefit the Library. The event will include wine, cheese, displays by local artists, and the music of the Jefferson Oatts Trio. The Simpson Barn, 6169 Northglenn Drive, is located just west of the Johnston Public Library. This venue provides a unique atmosphere for the party, and makes it easy to browse among the art displays while enjoying the music, food, and fellowship.
Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased in advance from the Johnston Public Library. Lisa Cooper, chairperson for the event, is excited to build on the prior year’s success. “People had a great time last year. We’re looking forward to offering another opportunity to mingle with friends while supporting a great cause. Last year proceeds from the event enabled the Friends to donate a computer with a number of educational games for school-age students. Library staff members report that the computer is in high demand by young people.”
