Take part in our memorable events.

Join us at the Museum!

The museum hosts several community events throughout the year. Each event is carefully put together, supports our work, and takes advantage of our waterfront locale! We hope to see you soon.

Annual Book Fair

Event Date: October 8, 2021 – November 7, 2021

For more than 25 years, we have held a the book sale in the museum gallery. Browse through our selection of gently used books to find bargains on your fall and winter reading material.

We will also have a selection of previously loved jigsaw puzzles and china tea cups in our museum shop.

We gratefully accept lightly used books, puzzles, and games year round! We’re especially interested in bestseller books. We regret that we are no longer able to accept encyclopedias, textbooks or magazines.

This fundraiser supports our exhibits, archival & artifact collections, and our community programs & events.
