Summer Book & Bake Sale at the Killingworth Library
We’ve waited so long, and it’s finally here! The Killingworth Library’s Book & Bake Sale returns on Saturday, August 14th. Thanks to a tent provided by the Killingworth Lions Club, the sale will be held rain or shine, from 9:00am – 1:00pm.
Please contact Lise Brule at email@example.com if you’re able to help with setup or takedown, or can provide baked goods.
The library will stop accepting donations after Wednesday, August 11th to allow time for sorting; we will resume donation drop-offs following the sale. (If you would like to make a donation before then, please make sure all items are in good condition – no tears, highlighting, mildew or spots, etc.)
