Thank you to the Friends of the Library of Windham and the hundreds of volunteers and generous donors who made a fantastic Strawberry Festival 2010 possible!

 

Strawberry Festival and Book Sale 2010

Before, during, after....Enjoy!

The Strawberry Festival and Book Sale is a town event for all ages ------The Library, too, serves all ages ----- There is something for everyone at the Library!

 

Empty tables await thousands of books.

Upstairs at the library, hundreds of boxes of books are ready to be carried down to the Multipurpose Room.

 

 

Organizing the books for easy browsing takes time.  The FLOW volunteers spend countless hours sorting books from October through May.

Volunteers of all ages help carry the books downstairs.

 

Final organization

Folks lined up early for the Thursday Pre-Sale for FLOW members, teachers, and seniors.
