Around 70 community members braved the icy winter conditions on February 23 for the annual Friends of Patagonia Library Trivia Night fundraiser. With hosts Judy Clegg and Lynn Davison, the night was full of laughter and fun. The theme of the game was “All About US,” the “US” referring to United States related scientific, historic, and pop culture facts. At this time, it’s estimated that over $2,000 were raised for the Friends of the Library group. 

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and talents to make the event so entertaining, and thank you to all of the people who came out to support the library. 

If you’re looking for another quick and easy way to donate to the library, look no further than com. Shop as you normally would on the site and, at no cost to you, AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the purchase price to the organization of your choice. (In this case, Friends of the Patagonia Library, Inc.) 

Since the foundation makes the donation directly to the organization, the consumer pays nothing extra. However, this means that you won’t receive a tax deduction.
