OWLS HEAD — Erin Dominguez, the former proprietor with her husband, Casey, of the Salty Owl Café are hosting a pop up bake sale Saturday, Sept. 18, from 10 to 2 p.m., next to the Owls Head Village Library.

Baked goods from their Owls Head airport restaurant prior to the pandemic is making a return to benefit the Children’s Room at the Owls Head Village Library.

This event is called “Eat Sweets for the Children’s Sake!” All sales will go to the library.

Dominguez and Casey have a daughter, Evelyn, now 2 years old, and another on the way. As a library board member and involved community member, they decided this can be the best way to give back and initiate some upgrades to the children’s room and collection. Dominguez  says she hopes to add books on diversity and inclusion, as well as young adult books.

Volunteers and library staff hope the day’s sales will be matched by a grant the library applied for, which provides a two-to-one matching grant for dollars raised.

The children’s room is named for Mary Dyer, who was the last to spend time and attention on the room, but years passed, and it is time yet again to give the space the focus it deserves.

The sale is open to all; a survey will be available that day for ideas on what the public would like to see in the children’s room and for children’s programming.
