The seventh annual Valentine’s Day tea fundraiser benefiting the Gilbert Library in Northfield was held on Saturday.
A sellout crowd of 100 filled the firehouse hall for tea and a light lunch prepared by the library’s board of directors and a prize drawing.
Proceeds will help the library provide educational programs for its patrons. The library receives $20,000 annually from the town and raises the rest of the money it needs to operate.
All of the food and prizes for the fundraiser was donated. The food was made and served by the board of directors.
