CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Friends of Queen Anne’s County Li­brary re­ceived a gen­er­ous do­na­tion of $2,700 from Out­reach of Sym­phony Vil­lage. These funds were raised dur­ing the 8th an­nual Card and Game Party held by Out­reach of Sym­phony Vil­lage. More than 100 peo­ple at­tended the event at the Sym­phony Vil­lage club­house in Cen­tre­ville, and the play­ers had a day filled with fun, food, and op­por­tu­ni­ties to win raf­fle items, a door prize, a ta­ble prize and a 50/50. Car­lene Cooke chaired the an­nual event, and the en­tire Out­reach mem­ber­ship helped to en­sure its suc­cess.

Each year, Out­reach of Sym­phony Vil­lage se­lects a ben­e­fi­ciary of the Card Party to re­ceive 75 per­cent of its pro­ceeds. This year, Out­reach chose the Friends of the Li­brary as the ben­e­fi­ciary. Out­reach has pro­vided sup­por t to the Friends of the Li­brary in past years, but this rep­re­sents its largest sin­gle do­na­tion to the Friends.

The goal of the Friends of the Li­brary is to in­crease the aware­ness of the fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices of the County Li­braries, raise funds for ma­te­ri­als that are beyond the scope of the li­brary’s op­er­at­ing bud­get and en­rich the cul­tural op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to the cit­i­zens of Queen Anne’s County.

The money do­nated by Out­reach will al­low the Friends to fund en­hance­ments to the Cen­tre­ville Li­brary ren­o­va­tions and to con­tinue its an­nual sup­port of the Li­brary’s Satur­day Arts Pro­gram at Cen­tre­ville and Kent Is­land li­braries, through which el­e­men­taryschool aged chil­dren in the com­mu­nity work with lo­cal artists to cre­ate their own unique projects.
