SAYRE — For the 20th consecutive year, the Sayre Public Library held its annual Night at the Library fundraiser on Thursday.

The event draws in approximately 100 people each year as they take part in the various events that go on throughout the night.

Kara Cochi, Vice-President of the Library Board, related that the event includes a live auction, raffles, wine and beer tastings as well as other activities for the attendees to take part in.

Cochi added that this fundraiser, paired with their used holiday decoration auction in August, helps allow the library to continue to maintain what they offer.

“We know that state funding is hit or miss every year and we are very thankful that they haven’t eliminated it for us so we do this fundraiser so we can make sure we can get the items we need,” she stated.

Cochi related that due to this year being the 20th installment, they decided to add “a little more fun” to the event by adding more raffles and offered fewer baskets.

The items for raffle and for auction were donated by local businesses, patrons of the library and library board members, remarked Cochi.

The board members are responsible for the event and the gathering and construction of the baskets and other raffle items.

Cochi thanked the local businesses and people of the community for helping to make the Night at the Library event a success and supporting the library as a whole.

“We want to say thank you to all of the local businesses in this community and all of the people in the community who support us in any way they can because without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do here.”
