The first annual “Evening Under The Stars” will take place in the Rice Lake Library Park, directly south of the building from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.
The public is invited to this festive culinary and entertainment event sponsored by the Friends of the Rice Lake Public Library. Attendees will be able to sample hors d’oeuvres from local vendors, including from Gordy’s County Market, which will be providing focaccia sandwiches, salami rosettes, gourmet cheeses, sausage, hummus, and dessert. A cash bar will also be available with Wisconsin craft beers and fine California wines.
There will also be a silent auction, featuring books, a football from the Green Bay Packers, golf packages, and Milwaukee Brewers tickets. There will be live musical performances by the Peaceful String folksingers and the Banshees. In addition, attendees will be able to learn of the exciting plans for the new “state of the art” library facility now in the active planning stage.

Patron tickets, with the purchaser’s name recognized in the program, can be purchased through May 31th for $40.00 per person. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the support of the many Friends of the Library programs and services.
