UNC Greensboro University Libraries will host its 60th annual Friends of the Libraries Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, April 28, at 6:30 p.m., with author and UNCG alumna Marianne Gingher serving as the keynote speaker.

The evening’s festivities, which will take place at the Greensboro Country Club, include dinner, a presentation of the new Friends of the UNC Greensboro Libraries Literary Award and an opportunity to hear about the planning for a future UNCG Library addition.
