Some wonderful community supporters of the library are planning a literary
cash mob on Saturday, April 5th in downtown Gardiner. Ordinarily cash mobs
are supposed to be secret, but for us, spreading the news is much better!
(https://www.facebook.com/GardinerCashMob) We have built a whole day of
events in town and the mob has decided to "cash mob" our second hand
bookstore that the library runs on Water Street. Should be great fun and I
would love to show off our great little community! I am pasting in the
schedule so you can see what is going on! All the proceeds for this event
will go towards the renovation of our Community Archives Room.
Now, all we need to wish for is a beautiful spring day..
