Due to a booking conflict, we have just learned that the grand finale performance of our 2011 Children’s Reading Program summer events will kick off next Wednesday morning (July 27th) at 10 am, when Kevin Horner – ventriloquist and illusionist — appears with Pirate Frank, Congo, and a cast of fascinating characters. (Leave it to an illusionist to disappear and reappear one week later.)

When you join us for this blockbuster event, we’ll have just three days to go until our special summer reading celebration, sponsored by the Friends of the Haysville Community Library: an Ice Cream Social on Saturday July 30th at 6:30 pm.

Haysville’s 31st Annual CityWide Garage Sale — Coming Soon

It’s that time of year again.

In just four more weeks, the nation’s first and oldest Citywide Garage Sale will kick off in Haysville. The 31st Annual Citywide Garage Sale will be held on Saturday and Sunday, August 13th and 14th, the weekend before USD261 students return to classes for the new school year.

Last year, more than 400 homes participated — a number which is almost certain to be eclipsed by this year’s event.

Permits for the huge two-day sale will be made available by the Friends of the Haysville Community Library beginning this coming Monday July 18th at the Haysville Community Library, and also at the TrueValue Hardware. Permits this year allow sales on both Saturday and Sunday, and can be purchased for $10.

The Library Friends will advertise the sale throughout the area, and in multiple media.

On Garage Sale Days, the library will provide lists of all sales locations* and a local area map to guide avid customers to each and every sale site.

Incidentally, the Friends of the Library will be sponsoring a community garage sale on the library’s north parking lot. Those participating will secure a permit and then pay $15 for a space. It’s an added convenience for those wishing to participate in the garage sales who have no driveway, no yard, no garage.

* limited to locations obtaining a permit by midnight Thursday August 11th

Beginning this past weekend and throughout the summer – in conjunction with the Haysville Hometown Market – the Haysville Community Library Friends of the Library will be conducting a book sale in the gazebo at the north end of the library every Saturday from 9 until 11.

Cold drinks as well as chilling murder mysteries, thrilling romances, delightful children’s stories and books of every genre and description will be available at prices that can’t be matched. Summer hats, quilting fabric, videos, and a variety of plants will also be available from time to time. Each week will feature something new. So, drop on by and visit with the library friends this Saturday. We’d love to see you there.

2011 Quilt Raffle Tickets Now On Sale

The 2011 Quilt is now on display.

One of the many uniquely wonderful aspects of the Haysville Community Library is the library quilters, who meet each Monday and Wednesday in the library community room and, over the course of the year, create a stunning number of beautiful and practical works of art.

Each year the library quilters donate one special quilt to the Haysville Community Library Foundation, to be raffled as a fundraiser for that nonprofit organization which so frequently aids the library.

This year’s quilt is now on display at the circulation desk, and tickets are on sale ($1 each, or 6 for $5) for the drawing to be held at our annual Christmas holiday celebration on December 23rd.

Quilters at work in the young adult section on a recent Wednesday.
