You read that correctly. Leave it to us to smash together Bridget Jones and the Effingham Public Library. Let me explain. Two years ago we held a fundraiser where we sold donated books and donated a portion of sales to the EPL's Building Campaign. Thanks to our customers we donated almost $1000 to the awesome new library!
Fast forward to now. Our favorite, fabulous British library employee, Catherine Bailey, came up with the brilliant idea to celebrate the upcoming Bridget Jones's Baby movie by making it the theme for this year's fundraiser. Genius.
So that means that in addition to selling books and donating proceeds, we'll have a Bridget Jones cocktail, boozy (and not) cupcakes from our favorite Youth Services Manager, Sara Smith, plus (and this is the most exciting part) a British accent contest. Get practicing!
