Most Anticipated Fundraiser of the Season: Library Fair 2017

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 37th Annual Library Fair was Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. 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.
