Flowers! Live music! Refreshments! Artwork! It must be spring.
This Friday's "Books in Bloom" at the Belmont Public Library offers an antidote for dreary winter weather while providing a chance to mingle with friends and enjoying 20 stunning floral interpretations of books created by members of the Belmont Garden Club.
The reception which runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. includes a cash bar and live music by Sinti Rhythm.
Those attending can enter a free drawing for lovely arrangements donated by local florists.
Tickets are available at the Library's main Circulation desk at $15 in advance and $20 at the event March 1.
This is an open community event for all ages.
Floral arrangements will be on display in the Library this coming weekend: Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 3, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
"Books in Bloom" is co-sponsored by the Belmont Garden Club and the Friends of the Belmont Public Library. All proceeds support Library programs such as free museum passes and the Author and Music series.
