Fridays at Five
The Friends of the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton have an annual author event known as Fridays at Five. Fridays at Five is a long time tradition for the Library and “The Hamptons.” For almost 30 years, the Library has hosted a variety of well known authors on Fridays in July and August.The event is held in the beautifully landscaped yard of the Library.
The evening begins with wine and hors d' oeuvres prepared by the Friends of the Hampton Library. The Author speaks, answers a few questions and then attendees have an opportunity to purchase the book and have it signed. All of the money collected including the price of admission and the sale of the books goes directly to The Hampton Library in Bridgehampton. Last year the money raised from this event was used to purchase and install automatic openers on the front entrance for handicap accessibility.
