THURSDAY, May 5th: Volunteers are scurrying around the Richmond Beach Library tonight, hauling colorful creations hither and yon, consulting and scurrying again, as they find the perfect spot to display each unique piece to delight the eye.

Ohhhh. Shiny!

Inside the library, the Arts & Crafts sale fills the meeting room--and the rest of the building.  Each year, we scoot aside the furniture to let the creativity in.

Proceeds from the sale benefit the Friends of Richmond Beach Library, who support library programming for adults, teens, and children throughout the year.
