The Friends of the Library will sponsor the program "Cooking with Pure Natural Honey and More!" a slide presentation and demonstration by Andrew Kahnle and Claudia Heyer of the Hoosic Valley Apiary. They will cover the benefits of honey vs. sugar with recipes, conversion calculations and treats to taste. A sale of perennials for fall planting will be held on the library lawn at 3pm and the Friends Annual Meeting will immediately precede the lecture. All are welcome!
The Friends Book Sale under the big tent will offer a wider selection and easier browsing. Our generous patron donations have been carefully selected and sorted. Support library programs and stock up on your fall reading. Return on Sunday, September 14 at 10a.m. for even greater bargains by donation. In order to expand the sale, the Friends will not offer tag-sale spaces this year.
The Library's 5th Annual OKtoberfest will take place on Saturday, September 27, from 4-7pm in the library's back yard. Last year we had over 170 people in attendance and raised over $5000 for the library. We're hoping to grow those numbers this year and have some fun while we do, so join us! We're excited for the return of our caterer, Georgia Ray's Kitchen. Tickets for adults are $30 and include a meal full of delicious German delicacies. Each adult ticket also comes with two drink tickets and an entry into the door prize giveaway! Kids' meals are available for $7. Please R.S.V.P. no later than September 16th!
