Here are a couple of events coming up on the Old Mission Peninsula. If you have events to add, feel free to leave a note in the comments section below, or email me at [email protected].

Used Book Sale – June 11 and 12

Hosted by the Friends of Peninsula Community Library, this annual fundraiser for the library will be held on Friday, June 11, and Saturday, June 12, at the Carriage House next to the library, located at 2893 Island View Road. The hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

The sale includes not only gently-used books, but also DVDs and CDs. And if you have these items you’d like to clear out of your house, they are accepting them at the Carriage House each Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. throughout the summer (including this upcoming Monday, June 7).

As mentioned here (click over to see what they are NOT able to accept), pack the items into boxes and place them in your trunk or hatch. Volunteers will be there to assist in getting the books and other materials unloaded. If you’re unable to drop items off on Mondays, you may bring one bag or box per visit to the circulation desk in the library during regular library hours.

Questions? Call the library at (231) 223-7700. Here’s the Friends of PCL crew collecting the books I delivered a couple of Mondays ago…

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
