Herb Foster was known for throwing epic birthday parties for himself and the tradition is being kept up by the Friends of the Edgartown Library. Mr. Foster died last year at the age of 93, but his spirit lives on around the Island.

Mr. Foster had been a library trustee beginning in 2006, and he will be celebrated by the library on Saturday, Feb. 4 from 4 to 6 p.m., as part of a fundraiser for the Herb and Anita Foster Staff Education Fund.
