As everyone tries to fit in a few more activities before children return to school, the Back Mountain Memorial Library is also making some late-summer plans!
Remember that the library will be closed on Monday, Sept. 7, to observe Labor Day. The library will re-open for regular hours on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Our popular Farmers’ Market is in full swing from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday. Residents have been enjoying a vast assortment of fruits and vegetables, along with some vegetarian meal/drink ideas, fresh breads and Amish baked goods.
The Farmers’ Market continues until Saturday, Sept. 26 - a day you won’t want to miss - as the library will hold its first ever “Barn Tag Sale” on that day, too!
The “Barn Tag Sale” will offer unsold items from our annual auction left over due to the rainstorm. The Antique Room will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., along with the Nearly Olde area. Antique furniture, including dressers, chests, decorator items and artwork; glassware including Lenox, Royal Doulton and Wedgewood; and items from our Nearly Olde and our New Goods sections will all be offered for sale.
So, after you get your fresh vegetables, be sure to walk around the back of the library to find more bargains!
Parents of very young children will be happy to learn that there are still several openings for our popular “Fall Parent/Child Workshop.” This playgroup setting allows toddlers, 1 through 3 years of age, to play and interact with other children as mothers (caregivers) get a chance to talk to each other and resource professionals who attend each session.
Call the children’s room of the library at 675-1182 for more details.
