The Wood County District Public Library’s annual Novel Night Benefit hosted by the WCDPL Foundation will be held July 18 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building in Bowling Green City Park.

All funds raised during Novel Night go toward the purchase of new books and other materials to educate, inspire and entertain the community.

Novel Night is an opportunity for sponsors and donors to gather together for a fun evening while raising money for the library. Appetizers start the night alongside silent auction items up for bid. The evening then progresses with a live auction featuring items and experiences.
