Book, bake sale benefits library friends
ROCHESTER — Books and baked goods flew off the shelves at Plumb Library on Oct. 9, as the Friends and Junior Friends of Plumb library held a fundraiser for programming.
“It all goes to programming,” such author talks and writing groups, Friends Treasurer Leith Patneaud said.
Last year, fundraisers for the friends were put on hold. Usually, the group hosts around five or six fundraisers per year.
With the book and bake sale, member Beverly Passantino said the friends are “trying to make up for lost time.”
Next week, the friends will be collecting clothes to give to savers and further fund programming at the library.
