October 14 - 19, 2019
This question keeps coming up...and the answer is :
Mimi Premo - Her 1949 diary has been donated to the sale. We would like to return it to her family. Contact Jane at the library.323-0417.
Our volunteers are very busy with vacations and prepping for the fall sale. We're looking forward to seeing our regular customers back again, as well as newbies.
REMEMBER: We are now taking credit cards, as well as checks and cash.
NOTE: At 2 pm a Friends volunteer will be inside the handicapped door in the hallway to distribute numbers to form the waiting line to enter the sale at 5 pm. A membership may be bought at this time, if not already current (check or cash). Although the library will be closed, the handicapped door down the ramp will be unlocked and rest room will be open at that time.
One numbered ticket per person. Kids, friends, spouses, must all be present to receive their own number. Otherwise they will be at the end of the line upon entry. After picking up your number you have time to go have a cup of coffee, a bite to eat or a nap. Library upstairs will not be open that Monday.
