A Garden of Books – Bloomed!

Our book sale was a great success, thanks to the community who came out on a hot sticky day to buy books! Gratifying to see that the printed word is still an attraction, in this day and age of the digital world we live in. Those lucky enough to buy $20 worth of books received a beautiful bouquet from our gardening librarian’s garden. And those smart enough to come after 2 p.m. walked away with a bag of books for a buck, the best deal around. Most of the unsold books were sent off to Goodwill, but we saved a sampling, which will appear at our regular book sale. So, if you missed out on Saturday, stop by and see what we have saved for you.LICL booksale flowers
