Friends of Smyrna Library to Host Free “Frozen Yogurt Social & Book Sale”

July 18th Event to Feature Frozen Yogurt by Pinkberry and Live Music by Peter Vogl

Friends of Smyrna Library (FOSL) announces their free summer event, “Frozen Yogurt Social and Book Sale,” taking place Sunday, July 18, 2010 from 3-5 p.m. outdoors in the Smyrna Library plaza. This special event will feature free frozen yogurt from Pinkberry, family-friendly entertainment by Peter Vogl and a book sale with incredible bargains. As with any FOSL event, all proceeds from the book sale will go to the award-winning Smyrna Library for technology, books, art, reading programs, and much more.

"The value of our library to the community goes well beyond all things related to the printed word,” says Dorothy Sibert, President of the Friends of Smyrna Library. “The Friends appreciate the donations, volunteer hours, and more that the Smyrna community has given to the library and are sponsoring this event as a thank you to the community for its support."

FOSL is really looking forward to this year's event as the world-famous Pinkberry is donating the frozen yogurt, which will be free to everyone who attends. Pinkberry will be opening its first Atlanta-based store June 25, 2010, in the Akers Mill Shopping Center on Cobb Parkway, so attendees will have a chance to be some of the first in the Atlanta area to taste their “swirly goodness.”

FOSL is also honored to have the talented Peter Vogl perform live at the event. Vogl is a guitarist, session player, and instructor who has performed on stage with Michael Bolton, James Brown, Bo Diddley, Francine Reed and many other famous musicians. Vogl currently performs around Atlanta with several local bands including The Blue Rhythm Band and Jan Smith. Not only is the entertainment free, but we're sure you will become a new fan of Vogl's music, if you're not already!

FOSL's Board of Director member Jeff Jones will be heading up the book sale and is sure to offer prices that can't be beat. It will feature a carefully vetted selection for of New York Times bestsellers and gift quality books priced at just $1, $3 and $5. This year's "Frozen Yogurt and Book Sale" is going to be an event you don't want to miss! Bring your family to the Smyrna Library for an afternoon of fun.
