North Bennington Book and Bake Sale

On Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14the John G. McCullough Free Library in North Bennington, Vt. will hold its annual Book and Bake Sale.

Area residents have been donating books, DVDs, videos, LP records, CDs and audio books, and the Friends of the Library have been sorting and boxing them for the past five 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 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. There will be no early bird sales.

This annual event is undertaken by the Friends of the McCullough Library to raise  money toward expanding its collections and support the library and its activities. The Friends group provides services as well, such as a weekly reading program for Head Start children.
