Now that Memorial Day weekend is officially in our rearview mirror, summer is underway in all tri-states. Well, technically the first official day of summer isn’t until June 20, but school is out, which means summer has started. Either way, you may need to find something to keep the kids and yourself occupied over the next few weeks, so why not grab a book … or 10.
The Willard Library will be holding its annual book sale this Saturday (June 5, 2021) on the lawn of their location at the corner of First Avenue and Division Street from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. after having to cancel last year’s sale due to concerns and the uncertainty surrounding the COVID pandemic at the time.
Now that the COVID numbers are moving and continue to move in the right direction, and the CDC has relaxed its mask-wearing guidelines for those who have been vaccinated, Willard is ready to sell you a ton of books.
According to the description of the event on their website, the library will seek to unload approximately 2,000 books of a variety of different genres. Do you like a good murder mystery? How about a political thriller? Maybe you’re more of the steamy romance type? Or you like to cook meals in the kitchen and are looking for something new to do. Whatever your flavor (no pun intended), there’s a good chance you’ll find plenty of options to choose from during the sale.
The books will be sorted by category and packaged in bags of 10 with a bag of adult books at $ 5 and a bag of children’s books at $ 2 each.
The sale will also include local food trucks, Fuego’s Taqueria, Lashbrooke’s Barbecue and Sassy Sweets Confections, as well as activities for children. At the time of this writing (Tuesday, June 1), the weather appears to be cooperating with a forecast of sunny skies and temperatures in the 80’s. However, we do know that Mother Nature can be fickle and tends to change her mind. any time. If so, the sale will be postponed to Saturday June 12th.[Source: Willard Library]
