Friends of the Pittston Memorial Library will hold their annual Fall Library Festival from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 on the library grounds on Broad Street.
An up-to-date book sale will be held in the lower level of the library. Books with copywriters prior to the year 2000, excepting the classics, have been purged from the shelves. The books are shelved according to the initial of the author’s last name, making it convenient to find favorite authors. Available will be CDs, videos, coffee table books, hardcover and softcover books.
Other features of the festival are the annual Bake Sale and Tag Sale. The tag sale will have a big variety of toys, Christmas and household items, holiday raffle basket, vendors, art and crafts, food stand, face painting and a library stand featuring a potato chip tasting contest along with the sale of t-shirts and other items.
Vendor space is still available at $5 per space. Contact the Library 654-9565.
Entertainment for children will begin at 10 a.m. with “All Hands On” with Bob Heim doing a paint exhibition with children participation. Balloons by Justin will create balloon animal characters along with many other items beginning at 11 a.m. Mother Goose will be on the grounds with a basketful of prizes for children who can help with nursery rhymes. Free books will be given to children who present a certificate that was distributed at the Tomato Festival Parade. Certificates are also available at the library.
