The BIG NOISE at Hartford Public Library

by J. Rossetti-Ford

The Hartford Public Library (HPL) was one of the noisiest places in town last Friday, September 18, as hundreds of people danced the night away at the library's BIG NOISE celebration. The celebration, which raised several thousand dollars, is one of a series of events scheduled in the upcoming months to raise funds for the library's expansion and renovation.

Honorary Event Chair Eunice S. Groark, the Capital Campaign Advisory Council of the HPL and many other library supporters attended the gala event.

Hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and a variety of desserts were supplied by City Fare, located on 86 Franklin Avenue in Hartford's South End.
An assorted selection of beverages were donated by Spiritus Wines located on 367 Main Street. Centerpieces and fresh flowers were provided by Judy Malootian for the library's Hartford Room and Jim Brunelle for the lobby and the Reading Room.

The sounds of Sambra Brazil and Strictly Swing provided the musical background for the event. The party also included a "Mini-Slam," hosted by Monique Jarvis, featuring poetry, comedy and music with Broderick B. May, Victor E. Jarvis, Henry Roseboro, Luis aka "El Extreme", Edmund Peart, Pat McDermott Trevant and Joe Young.

"It was a wonderful experience working with the staff of the Hartford Public Library on this event. Filling the library with vitality, energy and charisma was such a pleasure for me. I formerly lived at the Goodwin and presently am residing at the Bushnell Towers...just a minutes walk to the library. This institution means so much to Hartford. The completion of the expansion plans will be really great because so many fine people care about our Hartford Public Library," said event coordinator John Alves.
