OWLS HEAD — Erin Dominguez, former proprietor with her husband Casey of the Salty Owl café, is hosting a pop up bake sale on Saturday, September 18, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., next to the Owls Head Village Library.
Baked goods from the Owls Head airport restaurant, prior to Covid hitting, are making a return – to benefit the Children’s Room at the Owls Head Village Library. Called “Eat Sweets for the Children’s Sake!” 100% of sales will go to the library.
Erin and Casey have a daughter Evelyn, now two, and another on the way. As a library board member and involved community member in Owls Head they decided this might be the best way that they can give back and initiate some much-needed upgrades to the children’s room and collection, according to the Library, in a news release. Erin especially hopes to add books on diversity and inclusion as well as young adult books.
A special bonus is that the days sales will hopefully be matched a grant the library applied for, which provides a 2 to 1 matching grant for dollars raised, according to the Library.
“The children’s room is named for Mary Dyer, who was the last to spend time and attention on the room, but years have passed and it is time yet again to give the space the focus it deserves,” said the release.
The sale is open to all and a survey will be available that day to give your ideas on what you’d like to see in the children’s room and for children’s programming.
“Many thanks to our good neighbors at the Owls Head Baptist Church for allowing us to use their parking lot next to the library for this event,” said the Library.
