For one glorious day each Fall the System holds its annual Library Fair. 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 until the upcoming event. Library Fair 2014 will be held rain or shine on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 9am to 2pm at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library (151 S Jefferson St.). We look forward to seeing you all there. Questions? Contact Outreach Coordinator, Sarah Hamil at 478-452-0677 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there. And don’t forget, even though the Fair only happens once a year we accept donations year-round!
Our 34rd annual Library Fair features an online volunteer sign up, sponsor list, and so much more! Click Here for Library Fair 2014 Flyer!
And as always, all proceeds from the Library Fair go to the Friends of the Library who provide much needed financial support to our Youth Services programming and the Summer Reading Clubs. Want to become a Friend? Join.
