Guests can mingle over a glass of wine, indulge in delicious canapés and sweets from local restaurants & caterers, enjoy the sound of the Andriy Tykhonov & Robin Habermehl Duo, and get social. Our special guest Marco Timpano will be talking about his experiences in acting, comedy and, if we’re lucky, his time as a hand model.

Be sure to attend this year’s After Hours @ The Library fundraiser for a night you won’t soon forget.

Tickets are $50 (includes 1 drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres)
