To the Editor:

The Edgartown Public Library Trustees would like to publicly express our gratitude and appreciation to the local businesses that generously donated food for our recent community open house on June 29: Edgartown Meat and Fish, Soigné, Friends of the Edgartown Library, Lattanzi’s, and Vineyard Bottled Water.

Many thanks also to the numerous volunteers, including students from Edgartown School, who graciously donated their time, ensuring a smooth event complete with face painting, games, music, networking, and delicious food. The combined efforts of everyone resulted in a memorable event celebrating the citizens of Edgartown for supporting plans to build a new library as well as welcoming our new library director, Jill Hughes. Thank you to all for making our community open house a success.

The Edgartown Public Library is grateful for the opportunity to serve our community. We wish everyone a safe and joyful summer and hope to see you often in the library.
