The Friends of the Library held its annual book sale April 29 and 30. It was a very successful sale, and $8,160 was raised this year. Proceeds from the sale are used to buy new books and other materials for the library.
A huge thank you to the Friends volunteers who donated countless hours organizing the sale. Thank you as well to those who donated items for the Friends to sell, and to those of you who came out to the sale, even on a rainy Saturday. It could not happen without you, and your efforts will benefit the library greatly.
Starting June 8, the downtown Farmers’ Market will be held Wednesdays in the library parking lot to the north of the library. There are new hours for this year, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Farmer’s Market runs through Oct. 26, rain or shine. We hope you can stop in for a library visit before or after you shop.
Did you know … in a nationwide Harris poll, more than two-thirds of the adults contacted by survey in January said that a library’s assistance in starting a business or finding a job was important to them?
