Library Fund-Raiser Event This Saturday

The 5K/10K Saratoga Springs Library fund-raiser race is this Saturday, October 9, starting at 8 a.m. at Inlet Park. If you're not up to running, you're more than welcome to walk. We're also encouraging this to be a family event; kids under 12 can ride bikes, scooters, roller blades, etc.

The cost is $17 for an adult or $8 for a child--or $20 and $11 if you want to include the breakfast afterward. The Kiwanis Club will serve a pancake breakfast from 8-10 a.m. The race entrance fee gets you a nice canvas bag for carrying your library books ($15 value), as well as lots of goodies included in the bag, so it's really a steal! And we've got some fun prizes to hand out as well. You can also register for $35 for 4 people (one bag).

Please come show your support for the library this Saturday! Spread the word to your neighbors! Contact with any questions, or click the link below to sign up.

See details at the city web site and sign up for the 5K/10K.
