Rowley Town Notebook: Get baking for the Holiday Cookie Walk

If you’re making treats for the holidays, make a few extra cookies and partake in the third annual Holiday Cookie Walk at Rowley Public Library on Dec. 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For this fundraiser, where 100 percent of the proceeds benefit library programming, members of The Friends of the Rowley Public Library are asked to bake and donate batches (about three dozen) of their favorite holiday cookie, and buyers are invited to “walk” the tables to select cookies after purchasing a tin, available in two sizes that cost either $15 or $20.

Volunteers, bakers and buyers are needed to make this event a success, so mark your calendar for Dec. 21. Contact the library for details at 978-948-2850.
