Annual Gathering of Friends


Every year the Friends of the Library have an annual meeting, which is really more like a party, usually at the home of one of our members. This is an excellent opportunity for you to check us out. Not only will you enjoy food and beverages, but you may have the opportunity to see another Natchez home that is not on tour. Plus, we guarantee you will make lots of new Friends!
