The Friends are pleased to announce the presale of tickets for our first Purses for a Purpose fundraiser. On Friday, September 23rd, we will be hosting a lively evening of shopping for all sorts of gently used, high end handbags, clutches, and totes. Several items will be on offer in our silent auction and raffle. We will have a variety of wines, cheese and appetizers on hand as well.

All proceeds from the event will help support the vast free programming that the Swampscott Public Library provides, including continuous children’s and teen programming, year-round museum passes, notable author visits, various book groups for many interests, special programming for Russian-speaking patrons, and equipment and furnishings. Our goal is to raise $5,000. Please join us for what promises to be a fun and exciting evening! Tickets are now available for online purchase on Eventbrite. We will also be selling tickets at the door.

We look forward to seeing you then!
