World’s Longest Yard Sale Will Go on As Planned

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. (July 22, 2020) – Each year, bargain hunters, yard sale connoisseurs and treasure seekers make their way through northeastern Alabama for the biggest yard sale shopping spree in the world. The World’s Longest Yard Sale, a once-a-year, 690-mile shopping trip, will take place as planned, August 6-9, 2020, and as a mostly outdoor event, there is more than enough space to allow for social distancing among shoppers.

Many shoppers begin the 690-mile, six state journey in Gadsden, taking the scenic Lookout Mountain Parkway to Chattanooga and following Highway 127 all the way north to Addison, Mich. Everything from antiques, collectibles, furniture, and dishwares to fresh garden produce and homemade jams and jellies along with food vendors and live entertainment can be found. It is estimated to be more than 1,000 vendors in Alabama alone. Vendors are typically up and running by 8 a.m. and operate until late in the evening each day of the event.  

Along with an incredible shopping adventure, the World’s Longest Yard Sale takes visitors through some of the most scenic rural America in the United States. The 93-mile Lookout Mountain Parkway has been touted “A Must See” by Reader’s Digest, the National Geographic and Southern Living magazines. Along with four days of shopping, visitors can experience true southern hospitality, a world of nature, including breathtaking vistas and majestic waterfalls, and a variety of locally-owned restaurants and accommodations. 

In addition to providing outdoor recreation, this event takes place in mostly rural areas in the states where the route passes through. Many of the vendors who participate earn a significant portion of their yearly income at this event. It also provides a significant positive economic impact to many hotels, motels, RV parks and campgrounds, restaurants and other retail businesses.

Shoppers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, insect repellent and sunscreen and to bring a face mask (when indoors or social distancing is not possible), plenty of hand sanitizer and water. Vendors will sanitize booth/tables frequently and are encouraged to offer contact-free payments and to display all items in the open rather than leaving them in a box to prevent unnecessary contact. For lodging information, directions, road closures and more information, visit https://visitlookoutmountain.com/worlds-longest-yard-sale/ or call DeKalb Tourism at 888.805.4740 or Greater Gadsden Area Tourism at 888.565.0411.

Winfield Public Library – Phase II: No Contact Curbside Pickup

leave a comment »

PHASE II: NO Contact Curbside Pickup begins Tuesday June 2, 2020 – Weather permitting. Heavy rain and thunderstorms may delay or cancel Curbside services on a daily basis.
This limited service will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 10 am – 4 pm and Saturday 12 pm – 2 pm.

Patrons with active library cards can reserve items online or call 205-487-2484.
You will set up a time to pick up your items outside the front entrance.
All return items must be returned in the outside book/media deposit on the sidewalk.
PLEASE have your items in a bag if it is raining.

You can view our collection online by going to http://www.winfieldpubliclibrary.com
At the top of the page click the Library Search link. This will let you search or browse our collection.

You have 2 choices to reserve items:

  1. 1. You can call the library at 205-487-2484 and tell staff what you would like to borrow and set up a time for pickup.
  2. 2. While viewing the library catalog, you should see an account log on option in the top right corner.
    Username will be your first initial and last name, all lower case.
    Password will be your library card number. Your library card number is located on the back of your card, use the barcode numbers.
    After you log on you can click on the items you would like to checkout, then click on the reserve button.
    When you see the message “Item reserved successfully” you can click the top right X and continue to browse and reserve.
    You will still be limited to 6 items with a 2 movie/TV series limit.
    The library staff will get a notification that you have placed items on reserve.
    The staff will gather your items then call or text you when they are available to be picked up.
    You need to be sure we have your current phone number on file.

We ask that patrons stay in their vehicle and call the library at 205-487-2484 to inform staff you are in the parking lot.
The staff will let you know if your items are ready and will place on a table outside in a bag with your name attached.
We ask that all patrons follow social distancing protocols while waiting for your items.
6 feet spacing will be marked outside but waiting in your car will be the best procedure.

Safely reopening the library in phases. Please be patient as the library remains closed until further notice.

The Covid-19 virus has had an unprecedented impact on the library and the communities we serve.
Our plan to reopen is dependent on factors such as recommendations from local and national health agencies,
social distancing protocols, critical community needs, and a sustained reduction in new Covid-19 cases within
the community for at least 14 days. The primary consideration is maintaining the safety of library patrons and staff
while finding ways to provide necessary services that the library is uniquely positioned to perform.

NO DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME – NO EXCEPTIONS!

PHASE III will be announced ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
