On July 30, the Swan’s Island Library hosted its Annual Island Bazaar while celebrating the fifh anniversary of the new library building. Artists, crafts people, good food and an auction, along with music by island musicians, created a festive atmosphere.

One of the highlights of the day was a repeat performance by juggler Zack Field. He wowed the crowd at the opening of the library, and happily came back to celebrate the anniversary.
