This weekend’s “goings-on” should entice folks to get out and about, and we sure hope you’ll make the library one of your stops. The Friends of the Library are hosting their Annual Book and Bake Sale to benefit the library, and the Stribling Room will be filled to bursting with books, DVDs, and CD books. The Mason Garden Club will be on hand as well, selling plants, lotions, and soaps. Bring a bag and come prepared to find some treasures!
