It's time for our big annual fundraiser, the Love Your Library Day Book Sale at the Carroll Gardens Library this Saturday, May 19 from 10 AM - 4 PM, 396 Clinton Street on the corner of Union.
There will be thousands of books from $1-$3, including kids' books, hardcover and paperback fiction, history, biography, film and theater, science, cookbooks, beautiful art and photography books, vintage titles and much more. Plus a line up of cool entertainment including readings, art activities, a bake sale and snazzy Brooklyn Public Library shirts for sale - all to raise money for the library and raise awareness of how important libraries are to our community:
11 AM - Lela Nargi reads her book "The Honeybee Man" a finalist for the Cook prize for children's science writing
