Peacock Keller & Ecker, LLP is sponsoring Off the Shelf, an evening of good food and good fun centered around our table decorating contest and keynote speaker that benefits libraries in Washington, Greene and Fayette counties. Get your tickets now to join us on September 19, 2012 from 6 -10:30 at Hilton Garden Inn in Southpointe.
Some people hum to a classical tune, others to the twang of country. You may groove to the sounds of Rock & Roll or sing an earthy folk ballad. When it comes to music, we all walk to the beat of a different drummer, but whatever you preference, music resonates throughout our history and defines us and our culture. It also fills the shelves at our libraries, whether you want to read about your favorite artists or put the headphones on. Come to Off the Shelf to help our libraries continue this purpose.
The fun will begin as each table's participants choose a book about music around which they will decorate their table. The tables can begin to be decorated from 4:30-6:00 on the day of the dinner. Check to see if your book has already been chosen by clicking on the tables link to the left.
The event begins at 6:00 as the cocktails will begin to flow. Use this time to check out the silent auction items, and purchase 50/50 raffle tickets. Credit cards will be accepted and an ATM will be available in the hallway. Support your favorite table by purchasing tickets for the People's Choice Award and placing them into the container on the table.
Then dinner begins at 7:00 and this year's speaker will take the podium at 8:00.

Please help us help our libraries. They need the support of each and every one of us so they can continue to be a vital center for education, learning programs and the arts in our communities.
Proceeds from Off the Shelf will benefit the libraries in Washington, Greene and Fayette Counties, most specifically the start-up monies for the creation of a Regional “One-Card” Network.
Our vision for the one-card system is to ensure that every resident may go to any library in our three-county region and use one library card.
In addition to increasing convenience and accessibility for our library customers, the one-card system will bring about cost savings and efficiencies that will benefit the entire region.
If you are not able to attend, please consider giving a much needed patron donation. Anything you can give will be appreciated!
