cm_librarynight3The Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation’s (CLAF) Night at the Library was held in mid-September at the Dove Library. The annual event raises funds to provide financial support for the Carlsbad library and art facilities and programs for children, teens, and adults. Attendees were treated to an Italian dinner and dessert, tours of the library, and a night of dancing in the library with musical entertainment from San Diego artists Melanie Taylor, Terry Wollman, and DJ Extreme. Ben D. Schulman, a longtime patron of the library, was the guest of honor for the night, and the crowd helped him celebrate his 99th birthday. To learn more about the CLAF visit
