Progress Days Bake Sale:

Our annual bake sale held during the Progress Days Parade was a huge success. Thank you to all of the people who donated homemade baked goods. Thank you to Starbucks for donating coffee and iced tea and to Fred Meyers for donating their super soft yummy cookies. 

And thank you to our volunteers - we couldn't have done this without you. All money raised helps fund programs at our library.
