Dear Felton Library Friend —

New Leaf Community Day

Plan now to shop at Felton New Leaf this Thursday, August 28, which is Community Day for Felton Library Friends. New Leaf promotes local organizations by contributing 5 percent of Community Day’s net profit to the organization selected that month. This is a wonderful and simple fund raiser for FLF!

FLF Drawing

FLF members will sell tickets for our annual benefit drawing at New Leaf on Thursday and for the next two weekends, and at the Felton Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays. Five fantastic prizes worth at least $100 each include gift certificates for Felton New Leaf, the Farmer’s Market, and local bookstores, as well as a wine package with local wines and a private tasting and garden tours with a pond-side supper.

Felton Library Festival

Our annual festival is Saturday September 13, 1-4 p.m. next to the Post Office on the site of the future library. Admission is free.

Marianne’s ice cream cones and sundaes, juicy watermelon and Redwood Pizzeria pizza will be featured. Entertainment will include the Common Cents Bluegrass Band, Little People’s Theatre singers, magic, Patti Maxine & Friends, and African dance and percussion. Children’s activities will include a literary cakewalk, face-painting, book making, bubbles, and a children’s book swap and sale.

Festival volunteers still needed

FLF still needs volunteers for the event and more cakes, cupcakes, or cookies for the literary cakewalk. If you can help, please reply to this email or contact our volunteer coordinator, Nancy Gerdt, directly at or 335-3130.
