The Marianna Black Library Planning Committee is arranging for another fundraiser to help build a new library in Swain County. The Fryemont Inn, in Bryson City, will host an evening of food and a silent auction in mid-April (date and time to be announced soon). Items from area crafters and businesses and local antique collectors are being donated and they are not to be missed! The folks at the Fryemont are known for their hospitality and excellent faire — so this is sure to be a hugely successful fundraiser. Stop by the Marianna Black Library or call 828-488-3030 for updated information about this event or to purchase tickets.

In other news, the planning committee has been looking at the space needs for the new library. A subcommittee has looked at every space recommendation and fine-tuned the allocated areas and their adjacent areas. This will get the group one step closer to meeting with an architect, who will develop a rendering of the new library. This rendering will be an important step in helping the public visualize the new library and the services it can provide to the entire community.
