Weed ‘Em and Reap Fall Book Sale

October 9 & 10

Outside at the Kirkland Town Library

We’ve been weeding the library collection and you can reap the rewards by obtaining some terrific used books. Choose from adult fiction and non-fiction, young adult, children’s, DVDs, and audio books, all for just fifty cents per item. Also, there will be a table of miscellaneous items the library is hoping will find new homes.

The sale will be held outside on the Kirkland Town Library’s front lawn on Friday, October 9 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday, October 10 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

A limited number of advanced tickets are on sale for $10, which give shoppers early entrance to the sale on Friday from 10 a.m. until Noon and on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. Stock will be replenished before 9 a.m. on Saturday to give ticket-holders fresh items to purchase. After Noon on Friday and after 10 a.m. on Saturday, there is no advanced ticket required and the sale is open to all.

All shoppers are expected to wear a mask, sanitize hands before entering the sale space, and maintain physical distance. Space is limited; there will be a queue for those waiting to enter the sale area.

Advanced tickets may be purchased at the Library starting on October 1, while supplies last. Cash or check accepted.

Pen Pals

We’re starting two pen pal programs!

Elementary students can connect with Hamilton College students through letter writing. Practice important literacy skills, learn how to write a letter, and make a new friend!

High school students will exchange letters with senior citizens and can earn community service hours in the process.

Contact us for more information if you’re interested in either program!

Read Around The Calendar

Throughout the month of August 2020, we had volunteers read the first chapter of a classic book and then posted the video on our YouTube channel.

Choose a video then sit back, relax, and listen to a story.
