The Friends of the Plainfield Public Library (FOPPL) host their "Wines of Spain" themed wine tasting event this Saturday (October 7) at the home of Peter and Libby Price, 966 Hillside Avenue, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. This year's honorary chair is Carlos Sanchez, Deputy City Administrator for Economic Development, and the event is part of Plainfield's observance of Hispanic Heritage Month.

FOPPL is the fundraising arm of the Plainfield Public Library, and annually raises thousands of dollars for spcial needs of the Library, which can range from capital improvement support to special programs.

Funds raised from this year's wine tasting will be earmarked for programs and partnership which enhance adult and child literacy in our community. Programs what will be supported this year include the Design Studio for Makerspace projects, computer upgrades, Smart Tables and reading displays for the Reading Rainforest (in the Children's Room), as well as continuing expansion of adult literacy programs in Basic English, GED and ESL.

Tickets are $75/person and you can pay at the door by check made out to "FOPPL".

Peter and Libby's home is located midway between Watchung and Prospect Avenues. Parking available on the street (mind the neighors' driveways, please).
