‘Spring for Books’ party at Skidompha Book Shop March 30

Posted:  Saturday, March 23, 2019 - 8:00am

Everyone is invited to the all-day “Spring for Books” party at Skidompha Secondhand Book Shop in downtown Damariscotta on Saturday, March 30, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This celebration of spring, and of books, will include a half-price sale on all books, CDs, movies, puzzles, and sheet music.

At 11, a ukulele band will perform. The band combines the talents of two separate groups: the Skidukes, whose members are bookshop or library volunteers; and the Skidompha Strummers, the ukulele club sponsored by the library.

Free refreshments will be available all day.

According to Rosie Bensen, co-manager of the shop, “At this time of year, when winter hasn’t completely left, and spring hasn’t completely arrived, we could all use a great party to lift our spirits. What could lift spirits better than half-price books, live music, and delicious food?”

The book shop, a major fundraiser for Skidompha Public Library, has been “selling good books for a great cause” since 1968. All items are donated, and all shop staff members are volunteers.

The shop is located at 17 Backstreet Landing on the banks of the Damariscotta River.
