Hours are 10am - 5pm every day through Friday, Oct. 14th; closed Sunday. The Book Sale is put on by the “Friends of the Library”, and is a big deal!

The many books offered in the upcoming sale are grouped together in categories, with overflow in boxes under the table. It has always amazed me (Christine) how very many good & versified books there are in this sale!
For those looking for even greater bargains know that on Thursday (Oct. 13th) all books are now half-priced the already low price penciled in. And on Friday (Oct. 14) their last day, you pay only $5. for as many books as you can stuff onto an Ingles box!
I’ll probably see you there. I’ve found terrific ideas, how-to’s, and even Christmas gifts at these sales. Come out and support your Library while benefiting yourself too!

NOT AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
It’s been a good trip so far. The weather was gorgeous until Sunday when it started raining in the afternoons about 3 pm. Tuesday was cloudy and cool. Glad we brought layers of clothing. We bought souvenir sweatshirts and that helped. On the first night here in Bar Harbor we stopped at a lobster shack and were amazed at the low price. The lobsters were $8.95 each. Delicious! Every other place they were double that and more. On Tuesday the bargain lobster shack was closed so we tried another place. The lobsters were much bigger than the $8.95 version and I actually liked the taste of the tomalley this time. I was grossed out with it in 2015.
We spent nearly all day in Bar Harbor on Monday. I managed to trip over a step to one of the jillions shops there and crashed. Luckily some very kind people lifted me to my feet as though I weighed mere ounces. A whole crowd gathered as I was guided to a bench to sit for a bit. I have a bruised knee but am otherwise fine. It’s amazing how many wonderful people there are in a world full of evil people and where shootings are everyday occurrences.
On Tuesday we went exploring and found a lobster buoy with the name Young on it. The proprietor said it belonged to a lobsterman named Manuel Young (Lucky) who had recently closed his business and retired. He knew something about nearly everything in his shack. Funny thing is that he recognized us. We had stopped at a beach on Mt. Desert Island and were crossing back across the road. He was in one of the vehicles that stopped at the crosswalk for us. He said our canes were the giveaway. Anyway, I now have a personalized buoy for my nautical-themed guest bedroom.
