Friends of the Brainerd Public Library, chaired by Sheila DeChantal, put on a wonderful event on August 23, 2013 at the Arrowwood Lodge. Wine and Words included a social hour with wine donated by Cash Wise Liquor. Thanks, Mark! Many local groups and businesses contributed to the silent auction with gift baskets that ranged from chocolate to board games, and many, many books and fun items. The food was delicious, especially when shared by so many friends of the library. The house was packed.
