WAYNE — The Cary Memorial Library Summer Book Sale and Art Exhibit opens this Saturday at 8 a.m. and runs through July 7. The sale and exhibit will take place at a new location, 14 Old Winthrop Road, across the street from the library.

Recently acquired by the library, this is one of the oldest houses in Wayne, and the former home of Eleazer and Honor Williams, according to a news release.

Many community volunteers have been working long hours to clean, paint and freshen up the Williams house and the booksale is the first time the building is open to the public.

Entry to the building is accessible by a ramp built by Ken Bate, a library trustee and retired engineer.

During the weeklong booksale, the library is honored to showcase the paintings of Dorle Gatti, an accomplished artist and a long-time resident of Wayne. Many will remember Dorle’s Tea Shop on the corner of Old Winthrop Road and Route 133. This is the first time that Dorle’s private collection has been exhibited in Wayne.

The book sale and art exhibit will be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and on Monday, through Saturday, July 7, during regular library hours: 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 3-8 p.m. Monday, 3-8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday. On July 7, all books will be $1 per bag. Please note these book sale “open” hours have increased since previously published posters and notices, according to the release.
