There was free cake and punch at the Buckeye Lake Library last Friday afternoon. The library was celebrating its fifth birthday. Friends of Buckeye Lake Library volunteer Michelle Blizzard baked the cake and Friends board members served up punch. The library also kicked off a Birthday Reading Challenge that runs to Oct. 15. Read either five books or five hours in five weeks to win a tote bag filled with goodies. Stop at the library for details. Supplies are limited. Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
