A Special Night of Thanks

The VPL’s first Books & Brews of the 2017 season was an upscale affair held on Friday, June 16th. Past and present members of Vermillion Standard Time were on hand to provide some fantastic, jazzy accompaniment to our formal unveiling of all the recent tech upgrades the Library has received, due to the continued support of the Vermillion Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library.


Director Dan Burniston emceed the informal evening of revelry, refreshments, and community, although the thanks expressed were formal and heartfelt. Our community enjoys one of the premier public libraries in the state, due in large part to the dedicated and tremendous support of our partner organizations. This evening served as just one small gesture of gratitude toward all those who work so hard to make us look good!


And speaking of looking good, we’ve put together a little video of the night’s highlights, which can be found on our youtube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiVBvlwCcbw.
