The Corning Friends of the Library will be hosting its annual Book Sale and Bike Raffle at the Corning Olive Festival on Oct. 9 at the Community Park on Toomes Avenue. The Book Sale booth will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the Bike Raffle drawing to take place at 4 p.m. The drawing winner will receive a brand new Mongoose youth bicycle and helmet, donated by WalMart Distribution. Bike Raffle tickets are $1 each or $5 for six tickets. A cornucopia of new and used books will be available for purchase at great prices – children's books, .10 cents; soft cover books, .25 cents; hard cover books, .50 cents. A wide range of genres are available from westerns to biographies, mysteries, science, romance and more, both fiction and non-fiction. All money raised during the fundraiser benefits the Corning Library's children's programs, library supplies and book purchases.
