The library will hold a socially distanced Used Book Sale in both our community rooms starting Saturday, August 8th, 2020 from 9 AM-2 PM and continuing from noon-5 PM from Monday, August 10th through Thursday, August 13th. The sale will conclude with Bag Day on Saturday, August 15th from 9 AM-2 PM. The price of a bag on Bag Day is a freewill donation.
To keep shoppers, staff, and volunteers as safe as possible during the Used Book Sale we are asking people to wear a mask as they shop, observe social distancing, and please leave children under 12 home. The number of shoppers in each community room will be limited, so you may have to wait before entering the library to shop. No donations will be accepted during the sale. We will start accepting donations again on Monday, August 17th.
Due to ongoing concerns about Coronavirus, the library’s spaghetti dinner fundraiser has been postponed until 2021. Any sold tickets will be honored at the rescheduled dinner. Please watch our Facebook page and website for information on the new date.
The library is home to a number of community organizations with meetings and programs that are open to the public. Visit our community meetings page for information on these programs.
