MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! for TRIVA NIGHT AT THE LIBRARYPictures illustrating the theme of Wine, women, and song.

The Friends of the Lodi Public Library are hosting an event to raise money for the purchase of more children’s books and media.  The library has recently withdrawn a large number of out-dated and worn books and A-V materials, so now there is a great need to buy new items for the children’s collection.  Wine, Women and Song is the theme:  Wine, in Lodi is obvious; Women, as 2020 is the 100th anniversary of women’s voting rights; and Song…..because it goes with wine and women!
