What is Books Sandwiched In?



Thank you to everyone who made our 2024 Books Sandwiched In season a huge success.  We are especially grateful to our sponsors for their generous donations.


Below is a message of support from the Rhett House Inn, one of our supporters.

Thank you for reaching out and considering The Rhett House Inn for your esteemed event once again. We are delighted to hear about the success of last year’s Books Sandwiched In series and the positive impact it has had on library programs.
We are more than happy to continue our support for the Friends of the Library. 
We believe in the importance of community engagement and the promotion of literacy, and we are proud to be part of an initiative that benefits such a noble cause. 
Looking forward to another successful event and hoping our contribution helps in achieving your goals for the upcoming series.




We look forward to seeing everyone in January, 2025 for another great season of Books Sandwiched In.
