Douglas County’s Dog River Library will celebrate its second anniversary with “Arts and Crafts in the Woods” on Saturday, November 2nd, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on the grounds of the library at 6100 Georgia Highway 5. The Dog River Library is known as the “library in the woods” due to its rustic location and matching design, and the arts and crafts festival will be among the trees on the property.
“Arts and Crafts in the Woods” will feature vendors that include book authors, crafters, doll makers, décor and wreath designers, and artists. The Friends of the Dog River Library will host a used book sale inside the library. The Public will be able to adopt animals on site from the Douglas County Animal Shelter. Fresh pecans, funnel cakes, boiled peanuts, chicken salad sandwiches, ice cream and other goodies will be available during the anniversary event.
Vendors are welcome to apply to be in the festival. Applications are available at www.dogriverlibraryfriends.com. The festival does not accept manufactured goods representatives such as Tupperware, Thirty-one, Scentsy, Origami Owl, Paparazzi, etc. Vendor booths are $25 per space.
The Dog River Library opened on the first Saturday in November 2011, the first new library in Douglas County in 25 years. The library has experienced weekly growth in the number of visitors and circulation, and has featured computer classes, children’s story times, and other programs since opening.
The Friends of the Dog River Library is a not-for-profit organization of citizens who support libraries and reading through activities such as the anniversary celebration, book collections and sales. Membership information will be available at the event.
The Public is invited to attend, and “Arts and Crafts in the Woods” has free admission and free parking.
