Library Day — June 28
To celebrate Library Day at the Market this Sunday, we’ll be holding our annual Cookbook Swap! Bring cookbooks that just take up room on your shelf, and swap for new ones. Extra cookbooks can be donated to the Brighton Memorial Library. The Swap is sponsored by Friends of Brighton Memorial Library. Library staff will join us to offer information on summer reading activities at the Library for children and adults.
