The Riverbend Raptor will also be roving around the book fair for your amusement! You can browse or make purchases — and be sure to leave some time to explore the Downtown Library and the beautiful Hayner Genealogy & Local History Library. The Friends of Hayner Library, located at 327 State Street, will also hold a book sale on this date.

Find a new favorite author and stock up your book collection to keep you busy during the approaching cold winter. What is more inviting than a stack of books to ease your cabin fever?

There are so many talented local authors in our community who deserve your support. Free parking will be available in the municipal parking lot across from the Downtown Library on Belle Street between 4th and 5th Streets. We are hopeful that this will become an annual event. Please plan to join us — bring the family and support local talent.
