Local Tourist: August 2020

It’s the last weekday of the month and Dara and I are linking up with Local Tourist. Yes, we did skip July. Things have been crazy and it’s difficult to really be a local tourist these days. However, I’m back for August and I actually have something to share!

Used Book Sale at Burger Farm

There are a lot of library book sales around where I live, which I love, but they’ve been getting cancelled due to COVID. It’s a bit tough to social distance inside of a room packed full of books. However, on Saturday, August 8, one of the library branches in Ohio decided to have an outdoors used book sale.

This took place at Burger Farm, which I’ve actually been to in the past for their Fall Fest. This was a nice location for the sale. It wasn’t terribly crowded when I went, and since it was all outside, I definitely felt a bit safer. Everyone wore masks though and we did our best to give people space. I think it went well, and I’m glad I was able to go. I found a book for myself, two for my mom, and one for my youngest niece…not a bad haul!

Have you been touring locally? 

I know COVID has messed up a lot of plans, but feel free to share any local places you’ve been to this summer. Maybe it was a restaurant to-go, an outdoor event, or something else that still went on with social distancing rules.

    The library here has been closed to the public, but they do allow you to now drop off books in an outside bin during business hours. If you have ordered books an appointment has to be scheduled to pick them up outside in a brown paper bag with your name on it. So the only book interaction is when we talk on the phone. I’d love to see a book sale around here, but there are still lots of yard sales going on. Hugs and hope you are well! RO

  2. It’s definitely not the same, but we’ve been trying to get out some. We do take out and take it somewhere quiet like the waterfront or beach.

    I’ve gone to the farmers market and they have a ton of precautions but it gets a little too crowded for me. But I had signed up for local farm shares so that’s an easy no contact pick up every other week.

  3. An outdoor book sale sounds fun! It’s been a while since I’ve gone to a book sale, although we did go pick out the kids summer reading prizes (books) at a little outdoor event our library hosted!

  4. I’ve been to some restaurants that offer outdoor dining, but that’s about it. I so miss used book sales, even the “discarded” books from the library for like 10 cents (my local library is still closed). Sounds like a pretty good haul!
