Valentine Boutique to Benefit Bernardsville Library

On Friday, February 10 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, Bernardsville Public Library will host a Valentine Boutique in the library’s Community Room featuring the artistic work of several talented local crafters. A percentage of the boutique sales will benefit the library. “This boutique is one of several fundraising efforts mounted on behalf of the library, and we hope the timing is right for people to buy their Valentine gifts and benefit the library at the same time,” said Donald Burset, President of the Board of Trustees, “With our budget as tight as it is, if we cannot raise enough money to cover expected shortfalls, it will be inevitable that some library services would have to be discontinued and our hours reduced.”

The participating crafters are Barbara Marchio who will show her totes and travel bags, including scout bags and travel accessories to compliment a spring and summer wardrobe; Christine Pane who designs and crafts original handbags, scarves and other fashion accessories for Flower Basket Ladybug located in Bedminster; Daisy Schimoler of Majolica House in Peapack who makes hand-crafted custom Majolica ceramics; jeweler Jackie Skarzynski of Chelsea Market Designs; and Susan Sletteland of Stanton Sweets in Bedminster.

For further information, please call the library at 908-766-0118.
