“The goal is to get people to come into the library and see all the new things we are doing,” said library director Andrea Platcher. “Sometimes this is the only time somebody will come into the library for the year, so it's a great way for people to see what we have been doing.”

Funds from this year’s Tables of Contents stay at the library, where they are currently working towards getting new tables for the community room. The event is Sept. 10 from 1-3 p.m. and tickets are $10 at the door or can be purchased before at the library.
