  • HICKMANS CROSSROADS — The county branch library in this rural community is looking more like Bargain Book City.

    At the front of Hickmans Crossroad Library on Calabash Road, library-goers are greeted by a sale table near the front door inviting them to grab a bag and fill it with as many books as they wish for just $1. Bags are provided, too.

    Any books marked with an “x,” on or under the table, are eligible.

    All proceeds go toward funding projects and buying books for the library by the Friends of the Hickmans Crossroads Library.

  • “Pack a smart lunch” was the topic of my Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less class this past week. This is a topic in this class series because eating lunch is important if you’re trying to lose weight.
