Country Bazaar at Bethel Church
On Oct. 15, Bethel Church hosted the second Bazaar supporting our local artists, businesses and community organizations, including the library. The library gave away books and we all did some neighborly “sitting,” catching up on what is going on. You never knew that bunnies, felted animals, books and seeds could have such a fun day together. Maywood Garden Club had an upscale yard sale. The leftovers were sold at the library at Fall Festival. The church had delicious homemade goodies. Crafters offered quilted home decor (Carole Burk), hand drawn note cards (Rachel Mattox), amazing felted critters (Kirstann Edwards) and a wide array of wreaths. From the farms came apples, eggs and a full array of seeds (The Matyas Family).
Summer Reading Program
In partnership with the Library of Virginia and many libraries throughout the state, we launched a summer reading program from June 20 to Aug. 6. Readers that participated included 21 adults, forty children and six teens. Prizes were awarded to keep our readers motivated. Students at the Childcare Center added to the party with their creative artwork.
Three times a year the library has Swap Day. It is a day that the book barns are opened, and books are free. Folks show up with items to rehome and take away new treasures. Spring its plants. Summer its household items. Fall its holiday decor and warm clothes. All free. We may be short on space inside, but we can party outside. Plan on joining us next year so you don’t miss out.
