Cos Cob Library Open House, Book Sale


The Friends of the Cos Cob Library will host its annual Open House and Children’s Book Sale on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 1 to 4 p.m., in the library parking lot.

The Children’s Summer Reading Program: “Universal Stories” is the theme of this year’s Open House. Beginning at 1 o’clock join Animal Embassy in an “Over the Moon Animal Adventure” featuring a nocturnal journey through the nightlife of the animal kingdom. With this program, all in attendance will observe the differences between “nocturnal,” “crepuscular” and “diurnal” animals by viewing live examples of each. From 2 to 4, Huckster Band will be performing rock n’ roll music. Children of all ages can also enjoy face painting, a caricaturist, crafts, games, refreshments and the ice cream truck.

The winners of the prizes for the children who participated in the Summer Reading Club will be announced during the afternoon.

Also, that day, The Friends of the Cos Cob Library will hold their annual Children’s Book Sale featuring hundreds of gently used children and young adult books. The preview sale begins at 12 p.m. and is free for members of The Cos Cob Library Friends (if you are not yet a member, this is a good time to join). The regular book sale begins at 1 and will continue through out the afternoon.

For more information on either event, please visit the Cos Cob Library at 203-622-6883.
