Next time you visit the library, wander over by the kid's section. There, next to the bulletin board, is a nice glass display case, and inside it are dolls. They're from Rose Bish's doll collection. She loves to collect storybook dolls, characters from fairy tales and nursery rhymes, and even a few fashion dolls. If she counted them all, there would probably be more than 100 in her collection... but not too many more, she says.
Every now and then she brings new dolls to display. Who knows what might show up before Halloween!

The annual Fall Book Sale starts next Thursday, as part of the Candor Fall Festival - and the shelves are overflowing with books. If you are looking to stock up on winter reading at basement-level prices, you won't want to miss the fall book sale. The Friends of Candor Free Library have been busy sorting and stacking all summer, and in a few days it will be your turn... to fill your book bags.
There are histories and mysteries, romances and science fiction, books for kids and books for teens, fiction and nonfiction, books about cooking and books about hooking (both crochet and fishing). You'll find detective stories, hardcover novels, paperback classics, poetry, picture books, DVDs, CDs, maps, travel guides, political commentary and plenty more.
Fall Book Sale hours are:
- Thursday, October 8 - from 10 am - 8 pm
- Friday, October 9 - from 10 am - 8 pm
- Saturday, October 10 - from 10 am - 4 pm
There's a Bake Sale on Saturday starting at 10 am and ending when everything is gone. Come early because people line up for the pies...
And Saturday afternoon there's a Bag Sale from 2 - 4 pm: all you can put in a brown paper grocery bag for just a couple bucks ($2.00).
