The Friends have been chosen to participate in the 10th Annual Cabazon Outlets: Shopping Extravaganza!  It will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The day will begin with a morning coffee service, a catered lunch, wine and beer tasting, opportunities to win over $15,000, and exclusive discounts from your favorite Cabazon Outlet retailers. Plus there will be live entertainment and activities. Tickets are $35.00.  As a non-profit, the Friends will be selling the tickets. Ticket sales began July 1st. online and in the Customer Service office, Ste.100, at the Outlets. When you order online, please mention you are doing so for the Friends of the Banning Library as this is a fund raiser.
