The Friends of the Champlain Library raised more than $1,000 after organizing a Steak Night fundraiser at The Windsor Tavern on Friday, May 13.

Items for the evening’s silent auction were generously donated by many local businesses. Magician and mentalist, Lawrence Larouche of Majinx made a special appearance during the evening which thrilled the attendees of the event.

The Friends of the Champlain Library will also be holding a book sale in front of the library on June 4, during the Trash and Treasure. (no book donations please).
