Summer Season

Summer is really, yes REALLY, beginning this month!  We have had a very long stretch of odd? Unusual? Strange? Wet? (you choose) weather this Spring, and I for one am ready for the new season.

Here in Gardiner we bring in the summer season with the Greater Gardiner River Festival.  This year the festival happens on June 22nd, the second official day of summer.

There will be many activities that day – from Ice Cream for Breakfast, to Face Painting, to the Arts and Crafts Fair on Water Street.

For us, here at the library, one of the most important events is our Annual Book Sale.  The book sale takes place here at the library, mainly in the historic Hazzard Reading Room.  The library doors open at 9:00, and the sale runs until 3:00.

You never know what you might find – books (of course), movies – both DVD & Blu-Ray, perhaps some music, we’ve had games at times, . . . Best of all? Prices start at $.50, and might be as much as $2.00 on a few items.  All proceeds benefit the Gardiner Public Library, but WHAT A BARGAIN!!!

Join us here at the library, show your support of the library and enjoy a day filled with fun, treasures, and laughter.

We have many, Many, MANY great books for you reading pleasure!  We don’t have everything set up yet, but . . .
Fiction – Lots and lots of great novels, and even some not so great ones, but all fun to read!
Non-Fiction – I have seen some books on animals – both wild and domestic ; cookbooks ; self-help items ; art/drawing books ; craft books and much more!
Children’s and Young Adult items of all sorts!
I have noticed some DVDs and VHS tapes as they have been moved into the Hazzard Reading Room.
Personally, I have not seen any music or “talking books”, but that truly means very little, as I have not handled much of what is available.
As always, the prices are great!!!  Most adult books are $1.00 and children’s are $.50.
Monday the 24th will be “Buck-A-Bag” day (10:30 – 5:00)!  Believe it or not – $1.00 for a bag of books!  Generally a bag will hold 20 items, so come on in!!
