The Sunshine Hall Free Library has a Community Day all planned out for next Saturday, August 7th with several different events happening throughout the day. Starting at 10:00 a.m. in the Highland Town Hall, (across from Pecks Market on Proctor Road) the Board of the Library will be sponsoring their fabulous Treasures and Trinkets Sale.

They have been getting donations for months now and have hundreds of items for sale. Need a cuckoo clock to get you out of the door in the morning-a vintage model sailboat or a mountain bike to ride off into the sunset? -they have got you covered at the Sale.

They have kitchen collectibles, indoor and outdoor furniture, pottery, rustic barn tools as well as power tools, camping gear, original artwork, small appliances, furniture, kids’ toys, a mini trampoline, silverware, and a variety of antiques all at very reasonable prices.

According to Kari Margolis, the Coordinator and Curator for the Treasures and Trinkets Sale “The Sale is a fun and fantastic way to support the amazing Sunshine Hall Free Library’s community programs such as the pre-school reading hour, the Summer reading challenge, the adult education and the online resources that are always available to the community.”

The sale will continue until 5:00 p.m. and all the proceeds will go to the library. The Library Board is still accepting donations of items that can be included in the Sale on Friday August 6th during the set-up at the Town Hall or on Sale Day August 7th.

During the Sale hours while “you shop till you drop” everyone can then walk over to the library’s spacious brookside deck and sit a spell and unwind listening to continuous live music, free refreshments, and a book giveaway. If you haven’t visited the library’s deck with its comfortable seating at umbrella tables and its 24/7 Wi-Fi, now is the perfect opportunity to do so.

During the pandemic, the brookside deck was an absolute lifesaver for those in need of a good reliable workspace with Wi-Fi and electrical outlets for laptops and has rapidly become the Town’s favorite spot to gather and relax.

Also, the Friends of the Sunshine Hall Free Library who are in the middle of their membership drive will be on hand so please stop by for more information about how you can join the Friends and support their activities for the library which provides any equipment needed, underwrites public programs, lectures, and activities at the library.

Then as one of the best closures for this great day starting at 5:00 p.m., when the Treasures and Trinkets Sale has concluded, you can join everyone at the Shrewd Fox Brewery (named Best Craft Beer Selection for 2021) located within walking distance of the library at 552 Route 55 in Eldred across from Irene’s Diner.

They will have a live music venue featuring the River Ramblers Band in their backyard Beer Garden and, of course, they will be serving the Shrewd Fox’s amazing lager beers, craft ales and ciders. Because of the owners Cindy and Bill Lenczuk generosity and community spirit all brewery sales made during the 5:00- 8:00 p.m. time will be donated to support the Sunshine Hall Free Library.

During the height of last year’s pandemic when things were so tough for all of us, even while closed to the public The Library’s Board of Trustees, Patty Kennedy the Library’s Director and the staff of the library made continuous valiant efforts and kept the library’s resources accessible to our community.

Please come out and support the Treasures and Trinkets Sale, which is a major fundraiser for the Library, or join the Friends of the Sunshine Hall Free Library to show our appreciation and support for their ongoing programs. See you there!
