Book Fair Coming Soon and Call for Volunteers

The John Hay Library will be hosting a Book Fair with books provided by the local bookstore, The Secret Garden.  They supply us with a great selection of quality books. John Hay receives 25% of the profits from this event and it is a major source of funding for the year. You will definitely want to stop by the library and take a look! 

Where? John Hay Library
When? Thursday, October 8th (8:30 a.m.-4:00) and 6:00 – 8:30 pm (Curriculum Night)
