The First Annual Friends of the West Bridgewater Public Library Beer Fest was great!

On Saturday, October 20th 4 – 7 p.m. we welcomed over 150 people to sample local craft brewery specialties, enjoyed live music, and grabbed some fresh food from our food trucks. This was a family-friendly event.

 

Corporate sponsors like Bridgewater Savings Bank make a big difference in helping fund critical technology services through the Friends of the Library.

See the ceremony here!
