Edgewood Fest Parade and Book Sale!


Come Join Us In The Parade!

We will be walking in the Edgewoodfest Parade this Saturday. If you and your family are interested, please meet us at the library, located at the old Edgewood School, no later than 10am. From there, we will register for the parade. We will provide candy for children to hand out along the way. We encourage kids young and old to wear their favorite Super Hero gear to support our Super Hero Summer Reading Program.

Still haven’t brought your children in to sign up for our summer reading program? Guess what? It’s not too late! We are happy to have you and still have cool tote bags available for all who register. Membership is not required to participate in any activities.

How much does membership cost?

Only $5.00 for the entire household.

Book Sale!!!  Love_is_in_the_books_by_mms92

We are holding our Book Sale from 1pm-4pm this Saturday, June 27. We were fortunate to receive so many books from donations that we have several duplicate and triplicate titles to sell. Do you love romance? We have them! We will have Boxes of Books and Bags of Books- pick out your selection all for a free will donation. All proceeds go to the WME Community Library.

Many thanks to the former Book Depot of Effingham and the generous members of our community for their book donations. We appreciate all of you!
