Books, Beer, Cats and Summer!

Hello ,

I’ve said it a lot this year, and it’s still true – we miss you. But I hope to see many of you soon!

The next Final Draught will return in person May 18. It already feels like a reunion of old friends. The event returns to our longtime partners at Town Brewing Company – where there’s food, beer, lots of space and plenty of fresh air – and the speaker will be Sheri Lynch. You may know her as a syndicated radio personality, best-selling author, Verse & Vino emcee, a voracious reader and Library advocate…I also know her as a dear friend who always makes me think harder and laugh louder.

Sheri will share stories from her new book, Cooking with Cats: Favorite Recipes of Crazy Cat People and the Felines We Feast With, which features recipes submitted by “BOB & SHERI” listeners. I hope you'll join us.

The world is slowly returning to a new normal, and your Library is committed to balancing safety and services. We're looking ahead, and we hope you are too.

Thank you for your support,


Jenni Gaisbauer, CFRE
Executive Director
