“I wanted to cre­ate an event that cel­e­brates the sup­port of the Down­ing­town com­mu­nity so I came up with the name Li­brary Love,” said Francine Dague. “I have gone around town tak­ing pho­tos of the area busi­ness own­ers, li­brary pa­trons and com­mu­nity lead­ers hold­ing up the Li­brary Love logo. The pho­tos will be shown on a screen dur­ing the event.”

Spon­sors for the event are Roberts Sub­aru, Sta­tion Tap­room, McDon­alds Down­ing­town, Framers Mar­ket, Valoc­chi and Fis­cher, and In Mo­tion Phys­i­cal Ther­apy.
