Atglen Public Library will hold its fall book and bake at the new Atglen Community Park on Ridge Avenue on Saturday, September 17, from 8:00 to 4:00.
There are literally thousands of books for sale, as several previous sales have been rained out. This sale will be held rain or shine under the new pavilion at the park. The bake sale will feature its usual goodies and bottled water. Face painting for kids and acoustic music are also scheduled.
Materials for sale include both donated and ex-library books, audiobooks, and movies on DVD and VHS. Adult hardbacks and audiobooks are priced at a $1, with paperbacks at $0.50. Children’s hardbacks are $0.50, with paperbacks at $0.25. DVDs are $2, and VHS are five for $1.
The Library will also host its Community Yard Sale on September 17. Atglen residents are invited to register at the library to hold yard sales at their home for $10 or at the Atglen Community Park for $25 (a table will be provided).
The Library will advertise the event and provide maps and signage. As this is a fundraiser, residents who don’t wish to pay for registration are encouraged to hold their sales on a different date.
Come and enjoy a day with friends and neighbors, searching for bargains, or making a few dollars for yourself.
