About No Show Novel Night

No Show Novel Night graphic with Novel Night logoThis year, due to the challenges presented by COVID-19, we decided to throw a party and asked that no one attend.  Instead of attending a big event, we asked you to show your support for the library simply by staying home.

Our No-Show Novel Night was a big hit! You stayed away in droves, while opening your hearts wide in your support of the library.

We are so glad you decided to stay home, kick back and enjoy a new book. Feel good knowing that your contribution will make a big difference in the lives of local readers young and young-at-heart.

Josephine & Matthew Bostic enjoy books borrowed on the first day of Curbside Service, May 18, 2020

P.S. It's not too late for those wishing to join in the support for this wonderful "No-Show" evening; you may do so by using this link to the No Show Novel Night Secure Donation Form. Alternatively, you can mail a check payable to WCDPL Foundation, 251 North Main Street, Bowling Green, OH 43402.  Please put "No-Show" in the memo line.

We want to recognize those who stepped up to support No-Show Novel Night. Your support makes a difference. Every dollar donated will buy new books for the library. Thank You!
