We couldn’t end a good thing just yet! The Friends of the Library annual Book and Bake Sale continues through this Friday, April 23. There’s still a great selection of videos, books, and audio books. And… fabulous homemade sweets – pies, peanut brittle, fancy cupcakes, brownies and cookies.

If anyone would like to facilitate a week of fun activities for young children this summer please contact the library at 410 Post Hill or call 325-347-5446.
