Woods Hole Public Library, December 7
December 7 12-5
Woods Hole will be buzzing on Saturday December 7 as the Woods Hole Community Association holds its annual Renaissance Fair in the Community Hall. The Woods Hole Public Library will be joining in the fun not only with a booth at the Fair, but also a big book sale in the Library, and, new this year, a “Bubbles and Books” pop-up event at Water Street Kitchen, which will be open from 12-3 to coordinate with the Fair. In the restaurant, books selected (and carried over) by Library Board members especially perfect for gift-giving will be arranged for sale, each individually priced. Several of the Board Members will be on hand to sell the books. The event promises to be especially jolly, as one could guess from its title.
Meanwhile back in the Library, the big annual holiday book sale will be happening, due to the long-term work of the Book Sale committee. This is the Library’s biggest book sale of the winter, and it promises to have something for everyone. Here shoppers will find a huge number of books for sale at very reasonable prices. All the books are carefully arranged: the non-fiction books will be arranged by subject, and the fiction will be alphabetical by author, making searching for a specific book or author relatively easy.
Book Sale Chair Camilla Larrey says that a large collection of books on sailing and yachting have just been received, many of them large lushly illustrated volumes, and will be a major feature of the sale. Also there are many books of new fiction, both paperback and hard-cover. As always for this sale, there will be a section of books perfect for gift-giving, all very reasonably priced. After the first day, the sale will continue during regular Library open hours through the New Year.
All prices are very reasonable, with a base of $2 for hard-backs and $1 for large paperbacks. Special books will have slightly higher prices. Even though the price for individual books is low, the event is a major fund-raiser for the Library.
