The 2014 Taste of Soup and Art Exhibit, the event hosted by the Friends of the Carrollton-North Carrollton Library, will take place on February 1 from 11 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.
The event is one that Friends' member and Carrollton alderman Pam Lee said everyone looks forward to attending.
"We are set for Saturday, and we're looking forward to a big crowd," Lee said. "The soups are delicious, and the artists are great."
At the event, dozens of soups are sampled by ticket holders, and the works of local artists are showcased.
New soups on the menu this year are Brunswick stew, chicken and dumplings, Italian meatball soup, old-fashioned vegetable soup, quick and easy potato soup and savory beef soup.
This year's featured artists and craftsmen will be Edna Christophe, Stephanie Clanton, Susan Dunn, Susie Gee Harris, Tony Harris and Leta Mims.
The Taste of Soup and Art Exhibit is the largest fundraiser for the Friends of the Library, and money raised will be used to purchase books and supplies for the library, which are not covered in the county budget.
"The television at the library died, so that'll be one of things that we'll look to purchase," Lee said. "Whatever the library needs, we're there for it."
Lee said everyone is invited to attend this year's event, and there are only a few tickets remaining. Tickets are available from any Friends of the Library member or at the Carrollton-North Carrollton Library.
Friends members are asking that each person to bring a muffin pan for an easier way of carrying the multiple soups inside the community house.
