Latter Library opened its doors to local vendors and artists for a family-friendly party benefiting the library’s future projects and continued maintenance of the beautiful gardens. The current project in the works is an outdoor reading garden that can be used as an amphitheater-style seating for other library events with the goal of bringing indoor activities into outdoor experiences and highlighting lesser used areas of the grounds.
Latter Library partnered with The Good Shop vendors and artists to bring this event to life. Food was provided by Dat Dog Catering and drinks were provided by The Wine Cellar on Prytania Street. DJ Gingerbeats offered musical entertainment.
The silent auction featured fun and decorative socks from ELL & Atty, a braided money tree from Fait êNola, a dining table runner from Designs by Masue, a handmade pourover coffee brewer and riding essentials from Poet Motors.
The Event Chair was Andrew Shachat, and Co-Chairs were Spencer Shilstone, Miles Mumford and John Bland. Marianne Mumford gave a speech outlining the importance of this event and the projects it funds. The presenting sponsor for the event was Landscape Images LTD, which has both an interest in preserving the library property for the surrounding community and additionally sees the potential for growth and new interests to keep the area alive and active.
The Latter Library is thankful for the existing support and welcomes new visitors to enjoy the library and its upcoming community programs.
