Annual Book Sale

This weekend is Covered Bridge Festival in Zumbrota which also means the annual book sale at the library.  The book sale will be from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 21 in the library parking lot.  We’ve been collecting book donations all year in preparation for this sale, so we’ll have a diverse selection for you to choose from.  Prices are also enticingly low, and all funds go to support your local library.

Be sure to put the library book sale on your festival “to do” list, and stop by on your way to or from the park.  We’ll see you on Saturday!
