The Friends of the Goodnow Library to Hold Annual Book and Bake Sale
The Friends of the Goodnow Library will hold their Annual Book and Bake Sale from Friday, April 5 through Sunday, April 7th, 2019.
The Community Room of the library will be filled to capacity with a wide variety of items for all ages. The Book Sale will feature adult hardcover and paperback fiction and nonfiction books, young adult books, children’s books, audio books, DVD’s, and CD’s at bargain prices.
The members of the Friends of the Goodnow Library are cordially invited to a special Members Only Preview evening on Thursday evening, April 4, 2019, from 7-9 PM. Members may shop and enjoy complimentary refreshments. Non-members are welcome to join the Friends at the door that evening and enjoy this special benefit of membership.
The Book and Bake Sale will open to the public on Friday, April 5th from 9 AM- 4 PM; Saturday, April 6th from 10 AM-4 PM; and Sunday, April 7th from 1 PM-4PM. Admission is free.
Friday and Saturday will also include a Bake Sale. Drop by and visit the bake table and purchase delicious homemade cookies, cakes, breads, brownies, jams, and other tasty treats.
The Book and Bake Sale is one of the major fundraising activities of the Friends and proceeds from the sale are used to support programs and resources not funded by the library budget voted by the town. These are things that patrons desire but are not paid for by your taxes.

The Friends of the Goodnow Library Seek Books and Bakers for the Annual Book and Bake Sale
Please help The Friends of the Goodnow Library make the 2019 Book and Bake Sale a success by donating books and yummy treats.
Donations of books in good condition will be accepted from March 21st to April 3rd. We welcome donations of adult fiction and non-fiction books, children's books (hardcover and paperback), books-on-CD, compact discs and DVDs in good condition. Donations can be dropped off on the cart provided in the lobby of the library starting on March 21st. We do NOT accept mildewed, musty, or torn books. Due to space restrictions, we cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, records, or video cassettes. No book sale donations may be accepted during the sale. All donations must be received prior to the opening of the sale. Thank you for your understanding!
Attention bakers! This is also your opportunity to help the Friends of the Goodnow Library. Baked goods are needed for our Annual Book and Bake Sale. Please impress us with anything you would like to bake – bars, cookies, muffins, cupcakes, pies, cakes, and breads are all welcome. Please wrap all items in clear plastic or plastic bags for easy display. Cookies can be packaged individually or in small groupings of 2-4 depending on the size of the item. To accommodate those with allergies and special dietary considerations, please label items that have nuts or are gluten-free.
We are also looking for volunteers to work at the Bake Sale table Friday (Friday, April 5th) or Saturday (April 6th).
To volunteer to bake or work at the Bake Sale, please call Alice Levine (978) 443-1729 or Bethanne Hinkle (978)443-4794, chairs of this year's Bake Sale.
