COE HILL – The Friends of the Wollaston Limerick Library (FOWLL) are thrilled to report that our Giant Book Sale on Saturday July 3 raised $1139.11 for further library programs, books and equipment.

Who knew that there were so many avid readers in our community?

What does that tell you about the importance of our library?

All children’s book were free to the kids at Saturday’s sale. It was fantastic to see community kids enjoying the face painting and freezies and wondering around the piles of children’s books choosing their favourites to fill up their shopping bag.

A huge thank you to the community for making our sale a success and for supporting the “hidden gem” of a library in Coe Hill.
