Library Fair 2016

Most Anticipated Fundraiser of the Season: Library Fair 2016

Hosted by the Twin Lakes Library System and the Friends of the Mary Vinson Memorial Library.  Supported and sponsored by the community members and businesses of Milledgeville-Baldwin County. The Annual Library Fair is held on the fourth Saturday of each September.  The exact date this year for the 36th Annual Library Fair was Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 9:00am until 2:00pm. The Library Fair was held at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library located
at 151 South Jefferson Street in Downtown Milledgeville.

The Library Fair is one of the largest annual fundraisers for the public library system of Baldwin County. The Library Fair is more than just a book sale, it is a full day of entertainment, excitement, food, friends, and of course - books! We hope you were able to join the fun.

The 36th Annual Library Fair web page is your go-to resource for all things Library Fair related from online volunteer forms, sponsor lists, and more! In order to continue to recognize those who assist with the event as well as our generous sponsors and donors we keep up the prior year's details (check them out towards the bottom of the page) until the upcoming event.

And as always, all proceeds from  Library Fair go to the Friends of the Mary Vinson Memorial Library who provide much needed financial support to our Youth Services programming and the Summer Reading Clubs. Want to become a Friend? Join.

Thank You to ALL Our Volunteers This Year!

Being a volunteer is a great way to make friends and serve your community.  Get engaged! Library Fair does not happen on its own - it happens because of YOU.
