Raising Events from a class library

I am in a scenario where I have made a class library (*.dll) file.
At some point I need to raise an event( from within a class of the *.dll library) of a class(Like Event in the Class shown Below) which is outside or out of the scope of the *.dll library. How do I do it?
Do I need to add interface in that particular class of the *.dll library and implement in the calling class or any technique?
Does anybody have some idea?

Public Class SomeClass

         Public Event SomeEvent

End Class

In order to call SomeEvent, you would need to have a reference to an object of SomeClass type, or to create a new one.

I didnot understand quite precisely.
Could you please illustrate withan  example ?
In you form where you will call it do this:
'Form_Load event
Dim sc As New SomeClass
AddHandler sc., AddressOf
'make a sub named the same as
Private Sub
   ' do stuff
End Sub
Yes, that was what I meant. You should call it the same way as you call button click event. If this class is in external dll, add reference to this dll first.
I answered the question completely and correctly. Shouldn't I get some points?
