The fourth Bands for Books event to benefit the Wiscasset Public Library is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3, at Seafield Farm in Wiscassett.

This year fundraiser will feature the Salty Dogs, a Maine musical group.

Attendees can dance to the music, feast on hors d’oeuvres donated by Sarah’s Café and imbibe at a cash bar.

There also will be a silent auction of a museum quality replica of an 18th century Windsor writing desk, handmade by the D.R. Dimes company and valued at $2,400. In addition, there will be 14 raffle items including an early Victorian desk ink well set, a two-hour sail on the Sheepscot River on a double-masted sailboat, an hour airplane ride for three over Midcoast Maine, a metal sculpture, a case of wine, a picnic basket filled to the brim with goodies, and a flower arrangement delivered to your door once a month for four months.

The September party is the Friends of the Library’s largest event of the year and all of the proceeds will be used to update the Wiscasset Library building, such as new lighting and carpeting.

Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the event. Tickets are available at the library, 21 High St. in Wiscasset, or purchased from one of the following event committee members: Michelle Peele, Kate Curran, Cynthia Davis, Judy Flanagan, Katherine Martin-Savage, Wendy Ross, Jenn Spaur, Crissy Swartz and Linda Winterberg.

For more information, call Peele after 5 p.m. at 687-8212.
