RARE & COLLECTIBLE BOOKS FOR SALE AT SML

Recently, a generous local resident donated to the Signal Mountain Library his extensive holdings of rare and collectible volumes—many of which are genuine treasures. While some can now be seen on display in our fancy reading room, we’re also offering a selection for sale to the public. Below we’ve listed the pertinent information, including price. If you or anyone you know appreciates the art of book making, military and world history, or investing in valuable artifacts (while supporting your hometown library), please consider taking this opportunity to visit us.

TREE GIVEAWAY AT RECYCLE CENTER (4/6)

On Saturday, April 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. the Signal Mountain Tree Board will hold its annual Tree Giveaway at the Signal Mountain Recycle Center on Ridgeway Avenue.

The trees will be bald cypress, staghorn sumac, and swamp white oak.

Because Signal Mountain is a Tree City U.S.A. member, we get 300 free trees per year from the State of Tennessee to continue our efforts to keep citizens aware of the importance of trees in our community.

There will also be a plant sale consisting of native plants, herbs, tomato plants, and others to help fund this year’s Rock the Ridge environmental festival on Saturday, September 14, at the Walden’s Ridge Civic League on Fairmount Pike in Walden.
