Library Corner

The book, plant and bake sale was a great success at Fulton County Library, thanks to the wonderful work of the North End Garden Club, which donated the plants and volunteered their time to set up and run the sale. Thanks also to everyone who donated books, plants and baked goods and to the Modern Woodmen of America who provide matching funds for the event.
