Fifth annual community fair at BCPL is April 14

CANNONSBURG, Ky. — Connecting community groups with local people looking to become involved is the goal of the upcoming Community Fair at Boyd County Public Library.

The library is registering groups to participate in the fifth annual event, on Saturday, April 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Kyova Branch, located in the Kyova Mall, across from Elder-Beerman. The library and the Kyova Mall will provide tables and chairs. Groups must bring their information and have a representative present during the entire fair. Small giveaway items are also encouraged.

The Community Fair is the finale to National Library Week 2012, which has the theme “You Belong @ Your Library.”

“The Community Fair is a chance for the public to see what their community has to offer,” explained Director Debbie Cosper. “Sometimes it’s hard to find that particular group or program you are interested in, and it’s hard for groups to find new members or volunteers. So, we bring both sides together for an educational and fun afternoon.”

Boyd County Public Library Friends will have a bake sale during the Community Fair, and the Library will have information on all its programs and services.

There is no charge to have a table at the Community Fair. To sign, call Amanda Clark at (606) 329-0518, ext. 1140, or email her at aclark@thebookplace.org. Information on all library programs and services can be found at the online branch, www.thebookplace.org.
