October Book Sale

The "No Tricks Just Books" book sale was held in the Café on October 7 and 8. There was a Halloween theme and many people came out to pick up a few reading treats. This sale was notable because the Friends welcomed several new volunteers this month and they assisted with stocking books, straightening shelves, and providing assistance to our customers.

We are looking forward to our next big book sale which will be held in December, and will also include jewelry and poinsettias for sale.

Wendy Stanley Visit

On September 27, author Wendy Long Stanley came to the Library and spoke to an enthusiastic crowd. Wendy is the author of the book, The Power To Deny, which is about the extraordinary life of Elizabeth Graeme Fergusson of Graeme Park. Wendy Long Stanley is a writer and historian who loves to write about the women that history has forgotten, and whether or not you read the book, Ms. Stanley's descriptions of the times and of Elizabeth Graeme kept the audience fascinated!

Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program is one of the Horsham Library's annual highlights. Activities, prizes, performances, and fun encourage people of all ages to read and review books. The Friends are proud to sponsor and provide funding for many of these events, including Family Nights. Different guest speakers provided fun information and activities on a variety of topics, including Adventure Aquarium, Kids Interactive Theater, and Craft Night, to name a few. This year's program has had the greatest participation ever!

Stock Up and Save Book Sale

Immediately after Horsham Day, the Friends of the Horsham Library held their Stock Up and Save book sale in the Café. Customers found many bargains with most books, CDs, and DVDs on sale for half the price of our already low bargain prices. It was a great way for people to get some books for summer reading at home, at the beach or anywhere.
