2021 Harvest Book and Bake Sale and DRAGon egg hunt

Our Harvest Sale has lots to offer this year! As always, we will have an assortment of pumpkins, gourds, and squash. Our bake sale table, stocked by library friends and trustees, will undoubtedly be full of treats. We intend to offer soups and hot dogs so come for lunch! If the weather allows, most of the used books will be outside with limited browsing available inside.

We hope to host an apple press the day of the sale so check back next week and bring your clean, freshly fallen apples to turn into cider! Don’t forget to bring containers to take your treat home.

This year our sale will also feature The Great Vermont Dragon Egg Hunt! Follow the clues, discover the treasure, and if you’re lucky, win a Folkmanis Dragon Puppet. The whole family can participate in this scavenger hunt around Orwell village. The Dragon Egg Scavenger Hunt will be available beginning Friday afternoon through 1pm on Saturday.

The Great Vermont Dragon Egg Hunt is presented by Vermont Fairy Tale Festival. Over 100 libraries across Vermont are participating in the event. The festival provided the eggs and dragon puppets, and invited librarians to design their own treasure hunt, rules, and activities. The Vermont Fairy Tale Festival is a celebration of Vermont Libraries. Watch for more information for the September 2022 Fairy Tale Festival at the Sherburne Memorial Library in Killington, we hope to see you there!

The grand prize!
