Oliver Wolcott Library ready for festival celebration
Marla Patterson, chairman of the decorating committee for the Oliver Wolcott Library's Festival of Trees, touches up decorations at the entrance to the library on Friday during preparations for the festival on Saturday. The event, the largest annual fundraiser for the library, will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. and will feature food and drink and live and silent auctions.

Tickets are $75 and will be available at the door. A large crowd is expected to fill the library on what is always one of the most spirited evenings in town.
