"Bags, Baubles, and Beads" Is On The Way!

Hi Everyone!

Summer is slipping away quickly and that means it's time for a wardrobe change - at least with purses and jewelry, that is! The Alexander Friends of the Library are ready to help you redefine your accessories with their "Bags, Baubles, and Beads" sale.

The sale will be held at Reformation Lutheran Church on September 16 and 17th with an early bird purchase opportunity on September 15. The pre-sale will be available to those who are Friends of the Library or to those who donated items.

(Hint! Hint! A Friend's membership is only $10 and will not only get you into the B3 sale, but also the book sale early in October!) -Did I mention it will also get you 20% off at Barnes & Noble? :)

And the most wonderful part? The proceeds will go to purchase a new rug for the children's department! Yeah!

I want to thank the Friends for all their hard work. The photo above has Friends Brenda McRae and Ruthanne Fry (Kathy Riddle is taking the picture) displaying lots of goodies with new library director, Laura Crooks, and me. Also, many thanks to those who have already donated items to the sale.

Please bring by any gently used handbags and jewelry you have to the library if you would like to donate them for the sale. And set the date to join the Alexander Friends of the Library for the "Bags, Baubles, and Beads" sale - Friday, September 16 from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm and on Saturday, September 17, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Remember the presale from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm on September 15 for those who are members of the Friends or who donated items. :)

Hope to see you there!
