Feel free to share this post...

A few weeks ago, I posted that the “Friends of Peninsula Community Library” group was accepting donations of gently-used books, DVDs, CDs and puzzles for their upcoming sale. They are still accepting items through the end of August – check out our community calendar for dates and times.

As of this week, we now have dates and times for the Book Sale, which will take place at the library, 2893 Island View Road.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: 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. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
