BENNINGTON - On Saturday, Sept. 7, and Sunday, Sept. 8, the John G. McCullough Free Library will hold its annual Book and Bake Sale at the library in North Bennington. Area residents have been donating books, DVDs/videos, LP records, CD's and audio-books to the library and the Friends of the Library have been sorting and boxing the materials for the past two months. There is a large selection of contemporary fiction, children's books, mysteries, cookbooks, gardening books and other non-fiction, as well as classics. The bake sale features a wide variety of baked goods from breads, to cakes, cookies and pies from the kitchens of the area's best bakers.
The book and bake sale will be held rain or shine in a tent at the back of the library from 9 a.m. to 4p.m. on Sept. 7 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8. There will be no early bird sales; the sale starts promptly at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
This is an annual event undertaken by the Friends of the McCullough Library to serve the community by raising money to expand its collections, and otherwise support the library and its activities. The Friends group provides services as well, such as a weekly reading program for Head Start children.
