Attendees of Friends of the Library’s annual Bands for Books Wiscasset Public Library fundraiser Monday night boogied to the Salty Dogs. The Labor Day event was held in the barn at Marianmade Farm.

“It’s a great effort,” said organizer Linda Winterberg.

She expected 150 members and friends of the library to enjoy appetizers and beverages from Stone Cove Catering and bid on silent auction items. In six years, the event has raised $20,000, Winterberg said. This year’s proceeds will go toward the new library doors. “The library tells us what they need,” said Winterberg.

Sponsors included Ames True Value Hardware, First Federal Savings, The First National Bank, and private patron Louana Frois.
