The Friends of the Penfield Public Library have unveiled a new opportunity for the public. Gently used books are available for a donation of $.50 per soft cover and $1.00 per hardcover, payable at the circulation desk. These books include adult fiction, young adult, children’s, art, history, cookbooks, hobbies and crafts, religion, and general non-fiction. Shelves are restocked frequently. The money raised from these donations is used to benefit the programs and services of the Penfield Public Library. The books are displayed in neat categories on shelves behind the photocopier.
Interior Design: What Goes into Decorating a Room: On Saturday, October 18 at 10:30 a.m., Barbara Brachfeld, decorator from Pottery Barn Kids, will show you how to create a new look for your child’s room. You will walk away knowing how to design your “dream room;” not just for a child but any room in your home! The first session will cover developing a floor plan including colors and themes, selecting furniture, and painting and wall art. A second session on October 25 will include decorative accessories such as bedding, storage, hardware, window covering, lighting, and rugs. Bring your questions and you will find answers! Registration for both sessions began on October 3.
