The Great Pumpkin & Fall Book Sale


353-pound pumpkin grown by Jason Jantz

Fall Festival is this coming weekend, and Candor Free Library is getting ready! As you can see, the Great Pumpkin has found a cozy resting spot next to the pollinator garden, courtesy of Rita Quinlan who bought it at the Tioga County 4-H Giant Pumpkin Auction. Drop by to get a selfie with the Great Pumpkin this weekend.

This is also the weekend for the Annual Fall Book Sale! The Friends of the Library have been busy pulling boxes and boxes and boxes of books from the closets, sorting out books and puzzles and movies, and sorting them into categories to make it a bit easier for you to find what you're looking for.

Whether you're a fan of Jane Austen or John Grisham, this is the perfect time to stock up on winter reading, riding-in-the-car books, snow day novels, pack-sized paperbacks, and I'm-too-tired-to-shovel-the-driveway books. You'll find histories, mysteries, sci-fi, crafts, kid's books, cook books, romance, western... enough to fill your book bag and then some. 
As in the past, there are no prices. This is a pay-what-you-wish event, and all donations are used to make our library the best place it can be for our community. Come on down. Have some fun. Go home with a bag full of books!
