Annual Garage Sale Day Slated for May 2nd!

Each year on the 1st Saturday of May we host a village-wide garage sale providing the opportunity for residents and property owners to have a garage sale without going through the expense of having to advertise, etc.  

So clean out your closets, your attics, your garages over the next month!  And get ready to sell your items as the streets of Turin get busy with garage sale shoppers.  This year’s Garage Sale Day is being held on SATURDAY, MAY 2nd from 8:30am – 3:00pm.  

For your $5.00 donation to the Library, the Turin Library will place advertisements in many local newspapers and radio stations for you. AND your location will be added to our map of sales so shoppers know where you are! We will also have a Chicken BBQ, a book sale, and a bake sale at the Turin Fire Hall on Route 26.  So, if you don’t have anything to sell but would like to shop and support the library, stop by the Fire Hall for some goodies and 25 cent books!

Updated Flu Clinic Date and Sue Retires!

 The Turin Library has been quite busy.  Rite Aid is sponsoring a flu clinic at the library on Wednesday, October 15th from 4:30-6:00.  Stop in and get your flu shot!  We are also having a Halloween Storyhour on Saturday October 18th from 10:00-11:00.  Kids of all ages are welcome to join us for Halloween stories, crafts, songs and games!  There is also a “Spooky Book” drawing going on, and kids can enter to win one of 5 scary books every day they visit the library!  The winners will be drawn on Thursday, October 23rd at 8:00.

     The library would like to thank Karl Frei for a generous donation of a laptop to be used at the library.  It is loaded with lots of features and over 10,000 files of music of all types.  Patrons are welcome to use the laptop at the library, just ask at the desk for details.

     We are sorry to see her go, but Sue Adsit is retiring from our library after working here for over 2 years.  She was a great asset in general, but especially while we were bar-coding the library for automation.  Sue did an excellent job and was especially helpful with any historical type questions.  Michele Liendecker will be taking her place so stop in and meet her!  Best of luck Sue…. But we know you won’t stay “retired” for long!
