10E2248: Benefit Night for Friends of Somerville Library - Tuesday Oct 1

Disclaimer: If you read 10e a bunch you'll know I work closely w the Somerville (MA) Library as a Friend of the Library. 

Next week. Save the date... Please join me in supporting this upcoming Benefit Night at Flatbread (Flatbread Pizza Co., 45 Day St., Somerville) on Tuesday, October 1st  for The Friends of the Somerville Public Library. The Friends will receive a donation for each flatbread pizza sold between 5pm-11pm on that night, including take out. Funds raised will go to support the Library's popular Museum Passes program, license fees for movie screenings, co-sponsor Somerville Reads and more, so the Library can offer a variety of children's, young adult, and adult programs which range from puppet shows to poetry readings. Think we even had puppets reading poetry once...

These are delicious pizzas made with local and organic ingredients in a wood-fired oven. Knockout... Plus a raft of regional beers on tap there, and even local root beer (Tower) and soda (Spindrift). Come down for a chinwag, and maybe win some swag.

We will be running a wicked raffle on the night - this year featuring big gift certificates from Island Creek Oysters, Bern (3 helmets), The Boston Shaker, Brooklyn Boulders Somerville, Whole Foods, Hubway, New England Candy Company, Union Square Donuts, and Groundworks Somerville (syrup!). A huge thank you goes out to all these local businesses for their support, as well as to Flatbread for hosting us.
