Saturday, Oct. 9, is right around the corner. We have one last chance to remind you about the Celebration of Fall.

New this year will be a produce sale from the children’s garden. All proceeds will benefit the library’s programs. Activities will begin on the library/town office grounds at 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
