Friends of the Library Book & Bake Sale

Friends of the Library held their bi-monthly meeting on Monday, September 10 at the Bradford Memorial Library.  The group meets in the Clymer room downstairs and joyfully welcomes new members.

The recent topic of discussions revolved around the upcoming Fall Book and Bake Sale, scheduled for October 4-6, and the Annual Sloppy Joe Dinner and Dessert Auction, to be held October 26th at the Civic Center.  Both events benefit the Friends of the Library.

Proceeds are used for various activities.  

From providing funds to purchase books for the Outreach Program, which benefits those who are homebound in El Dorado, in the hospital, or are in a nursing home or assisted living facility; to purchasing books to be given out during Trick or Treat Down the Street, the goal is always the same, supporting the Bradford Memorial Library.

Located in the Clymer Room on the the lower level of the Library, the hours for the Book & Bake Sale will be Thursday, October 4th from 5-8p; Friday, October 5th from 9a-5p; and Saturday, October 6th from 9a-2p.  Books will be .50 each or $7.00 a bag.

Tickets for the Sloppy Joe Dinner and Dessert Auction will be available for purchase during the Book and Bake Sale.  Tickets are $8 a person.
