Sept. 7, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.: Libby Friends of the Library will hold its monthly book sale, featuring many new-to-its-collection books, an assortment of audio and videotapes and “surprise features” for the month.

Sept. 8, 10 a.m.: Homeschool Hour will be held at Troy Library, featuring an educational workshop. Participants are encouraged to display their work, and parents can network and share ideas and curriculum.
