Fall Book Sale:  Dates Changed!

The White County Friends of the Library are teaming up for the annual Fall Book Sale.  Donations have been rolling in and we have many items waiting for you!

The Book Sale will be held at the Sparta First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, located on North Church Street in Sparta.  Directional signs will be posted.  Hours for the sale are as follows:
Thursday, Sept 25
9:00 am - 6:00 PM
Friday, Sept 26
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday, Sept 27
8:00 am - Noon

Thursday's early shoppers will get the best selection of materials available.  Selected remaining items will be discounted around noon on Friday.  Deeper discounts will be taken throughout the day on Saturday.

As always, volunteers are needed to help work the sale.  Please contact Doris Dawson at 935-3066 to volunteer.  Workers are always needed and welcome, and are especially needed during the setup and tear down phases.

All monies raised go directly to the Friends of the White County Library.  The Friends then use this money to add to the Library's book collection and assist with funding for other Library needs.

Book donations can be dropped off at the Library until the sale dates.  We accept any books in decent condition, hard cover, or paperback.  If you are unable to deliver the books you wish to donate to the Library, please call and we will try to work out a time to pick up the books.  And do remember, all donations are tax-deductible.  See all of you at the Book Sale!

Spooktacular Storytelling Stroll:
October 11!

Join the White County Public Library on October 11 as we kick off the Halloween season with our Spooktacular Story Stroll!  We have recruited several local storytellers to spin tales that will send chills down your spine, as well as number of ghouls to lead you along the way.

These stories are a little scary, so audience discretion is advised.  Groups will be admitted at the Library between 5:00 and 6:30 PM, so come early to make sure you get in!  Admission is FREE.

We are still looking for one more storyteller.  If you are interested, please prepare a short scary story for an audition.  Stories must be memorized, and you must have a costume.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, call Erin or Cathy at 931-836-3613.  We hope to see you there!
