Every year the Lincoln Library holds a “Books, Soup and Pie Sale” either on Columbus Day weekend or in November. People buy their Thanksgiving pies and freeze them. Last year librarian Debi Gray reported making $700 solely on pie sales. Check out the event at the library website.
The Grafton Library also holds an annual booksale the Saturday of the Columbus weekend– when people are in town for the foliage and other nonprofit fundraisers.
A special twist on storytelling for adults is scheduled for Valentine’s Day eve in Grafton. Sounds like a Vermont version of The Moth from NPR.
*Bring Us Your True Love Stories *
Have a love story you’re longing to tell? Or one you’d love to hear? On Sunday, February 13 from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Grafton Public Library, storyteller and author Annie Hawkins and librarian Michelle Dufort are hosting a gathering of stories in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
Please come and tell us your unscripted 5-minute story about a person, place, possession, pet, or anything you deeply love. Or just come and listen. Annie will kick off the fun with her story and then the stage will belong to you.
Please note that “unscripted” means that the text is in your heart, not on a page.
Grafton Public Library held an “Adopt-A-Dewey” Program to fill in empty areas of their nonfiction collection.
