As the staff of the Hastings Public Library plans to up their fundraising efforts for its Renew campaign, they would like the ability to toast to their donors and success — with adult beverages.
Library director Amy Hafer attended the City Council's work session Tuesday to ask that the library be added to the list of city properties that permit alcohol for special events.
"We're getting ready to kick off a significant fundraising year. We'd like to have some wine-and-cheese-type events for our patrons," Hafer said. "We'd also like to have a toast thanking our donors after we renovate and reopen."
