Group to host JP library fundraiser

March 24, 2017

With the renovated Jamaica Plain Branch Library slated to reopen sometime in mid to late May, the library’s “friends” group will host a fundraiser on May 5.

Gretchen Grozier, co-chair of the Friends of the JP Branch Library, said in a phone interview that the fundraiser will help support new programs in the renovated library. She said they hope to raise about $20,000 and that anything “more than that would be great.”

Tickets for the event, which will take place at the library, start at $100 and attendees will get an early look at the renovated building before it officially opens. Grozier said the event will have appetizers and a performance by the local orchestra A Far Cry.

“I’m so excited,” Grozier said about the soon-to-be-open library. “It’s been a long and arduous process.”
