Saturday

Book it to Lenox: The Lenox Library's 20th annual book sale will be held this year Aug. 21-23 at The Lenox Library, 18 Main St.  This year's gigantic "Bargains in Books" event will feature a huge collection of books in 40 categories, all gathered from Berkshire homes. The sale is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm when admission is free all day. Children’s books at bargain prices is the largest category, followed by fiction, cookbooks, and biography. Prices start at 50 cents for small paperbacks, and at $1.50 for large paperbacks and hardcovers.

Aye, matey: The first-ever “Pontoosuc Flotilla” will set off and traverse Pontoosuc Lake starting at 1:30 p.m. as part of a celebration of Lanesborough’s 250th anniversary. The flotilla will be led by “the Sheila,” a recreated version of the original Sheila, the boat once owned by Andrew Carnegie that gave passenger tours on the lake for more than 50 years. Participation in the Pontoosuc Flotilla is open to anyone with a boat; sailboats are not allowed, given the vagaries of wind. Flotilla participants do not need to be residents of Lanesborough. The main Flotilla Route, open to all motorized vehicles and paddlers, will set out from the staging area near Matt Reilly’s Pub just over the Pittsfield-Lanesborough line on Route 7 and continue around the entire lake.
