SATURDAY May 5

Mark your calendar: On Saturday, May 5th the Library Foundation is hosting Kentucky Derby Day at the Coolidge Corner Library – just before the location closes for a brief renovation.

We’ll sip mint juleps, listen to Bluegrass music and watch the 144th running of The Kentucky Derby – all while raising money to support the renovation and fund technology at each of our libraries. When we heard that the Coolidge Library would temporarily close for repairs this summer, the Library Foundation offered to contribute additional capital to make significant upgrades for the future.

Get your Derby hats ready and join your friends and neighbors to watch the most exciting two minutes in sports! Help us set the pace early by taking two minutes now to pledge advance support by March 22nd and be listed on the invitation.
Click on DerbyDay@Coolidge for more information and watch for ticket sales to begin April 1st.
