The ImagineIF Foundation held "Read Between the Wines" last week, a fundraising event to benefit the Bigfork Library Project, which aims to transform the Bethany Lutheran Church Ark Building into a new branch of the ImagineIF library system.

The ImagineIF Foundation has raised more than $821,000, getting close to reaching the $1.2 million needed to begin construction on the new Bigfork library.
