Library sets ‘Novel Affair’ dinner, auction

ROARING SPRING – The Roaring Spring Community Library will hold its sixth annual “A Novel Affair” Dinner and Silent Auction on March 15 at Trinity United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.

“A Novel Affair” raises funds to help support the library. With new state mandates requiring added benefits be offered by the library, it is crucial for the library to raise extra funds.

The night will consist of dinner and silent auction, with many items to be auctioned off, including a Keurig coffee brewer, sponsored by Boscovs; a flat-screen TV, sponsored by the Friends of the Library; and Altoona Curve tickets, sponsored by The Altoona Curve.

Tickets for “A Novel Affair” are $25 per person.

Companies interested in becoming sponsors for the event can either place a business card ad in the booklet for $20 or become a corporate sponsor for $275. Corporate sponsors will receive eight tickets for the event, will be mentioned during the event and will also receive an ad in the booklet.

To become a corporate sponsor, place a business card ad or order tickets for this event, call the library at 224-2994 or email

mmcintyre@roaringspring and speak to Michelle McIntyre.
