Big Spring residents are encouraged to attend the annual Fall Festival Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the John Graham Library, Newville.
Held on the grounds of the Parsonage Street library, the event includes good food, fun activities and the sale of fall crafts and decorations.
All food available for purchase is home baked by local supporters of the library or will be cooked on the spot by the library's own team of culinary experts. The Fall Festival offers homemade soups, chili, hot dogs and hot sausages, and even sauerkraut for those who prefer it. A dizzying array of cookies, cakes, pies, breads, muffins and chocolates, all made from scratch in local kitchens, is also available.
Folks of all ages will enjoy events like pony rides, a bounce house, dime toss, face painting, scarecrow making, hay wagon rides and pumpkin painting. Fall items and decorations such as pumpkins, mums and Indian corn, hay bales and corn shocks will be available for purchase.
The Fall Festival is a fundraiser for the Friends of the John Graham Library. All funds raised at this event directly enhance library services offered in the community.
While visiting the festival, make sure to check out the new “Bookery” shelf inside the library. Forty feet of shelf space has been added to the library to sell books directly to the public all year round. All books, children or adult, hardback or paperback, are 50 cents, and new books are added daily.
