Cheers to the Next 50 Years

ticket1114The Killingworth Library Association, in partnership with the Killingworth Women’s Organization, invites you to a celebration, “Cheers to the Next 50 Years!” to launch the next half century of the library’s service to the Killingworth community.

Celebrate this fun, family-friendly event at the Killingworth Library on Saturday, November 8 from 4pm to 7pm with food, drinks, friends and neighbors, and an impressive array of auction items. Anyone who wants to be part of the library’s 50th Anniversary video, will have the chance to share: what they like best about the Killingworth Library or what they imagine the Killingworth Library will be like 50 years from now.

Tickets for “Cheers to the Next 50 Years!” may be purchased at the library or here online. Price includes admission, dinner entrée from High Tide Gourmet (choices range from hot lobster roll to Caesar salad with chicken, shrimp or scallops to rum guava BBQ pulled pork and jumbo Hummel hotdogs), as well as a scrumptious dessert table and drink station. The over-21 crowd may enjoy wine and beer as part of their ticket price.  The cost is $25 for adults, $15 for Youth (Grade 5 through High School), and $10 for children through Grade 4. If your child would like the option to have a hot lobster roll, the ticket is $20.
