Fall Book and Bake Sale at Stockton Springs Community Library September 12

Stockton Springs Community Library is holding a Fall Book and Bake Sale at the library on Saturday, September 12, from 9 am till 1 pm (unless we sell out earlier). So come and find that special book or two, the movies and shows you’ve always wanted. While you are here, we are sure you will not be able to leave without buying some scrumptious homemade baked goods! Our volunteers really know how to bake your favorites. So put this date on your calendar and don’t miss it!

Additional donations of baked goods (homemade only) are certainly welcome to help us make this event successful.

If you’ve been holding on to books to donate, we need to ask you to hang on to them until next year if you can. Our limited storage space is already bursting at the seams.

Thank you to all who help support SSCL in so many ways. We hope to see you on September 12 at the Fall Book and Bake Sale! Face masks and social distancing guidelines are strictly enforced.

Don’t forget if you don’t want to come into the library to check out a book or movie, you can call 207-567-4147 and leave a detailed message (or better yet, call during open hours). We will have your books and movies checked out and ready for you and available on the porch. Items that are returned to the library are put in quarantine as per State guidelines, so you may have a little wait, but we’ll let you know when they are available.
