Tocci Building Corp recently hosted our March Network gathering at their headquarters in the charmingly restored Guastavino Tile Factory. It was a wonderful event with great food and conversation. Everyone was treated to an informative discussion regarding the historical significance of the Woburn Public Library’s architecture and the design dilemmas presented when planning the upcoming expansion. We had several raffle winners for the Joe’s American Bar & Grill gift cards as well as for tickets to the upcoming Library fundraiser.

On April 14th, the Library Foundation will be hosting an evening with Anthony Amore, author of The Art Of The Con and the Head of Security and Chief Investigator at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum since 2005. Mr. Amore will regale the audience with tales of daring art thefts and scams that cost millions. Described as an “engrossing read about brazen, artful scams through fakes and forgeries,” The Art of the Con (available for sale the night of the event) uses Amore’s decades of experience as a security expert to reveal true-crime stories of art gallery grifters who reap millions from unsuspecting dealers and collectors.

For the first time ever, framed and matted prints of paintings from the Woburn Public Library’s collection will be for sale as part of the evening’s silent auction. There will be drawings, Woburn students’ interpretations of paintings from the Library’s collection, and light refreshments with a cash bar.

The Foundation would like to thank the Event Sponsor – Lawton Real Estate, Inc. – and additional sponsors – Janis Research Company, LLC, Massachusetts Independent Bankers Association, Paul J. Lennon, DDS, and Tocci Building Companies- for their generous donations.

Tickets are $10.00 before the event and are available for purchase at the Woburn Public Library’s main desk. At the door, tickets will be $15.00.
