Participants are encouraged to bring their inherited treasures for identification as well as valued.

There will also be book signings of the new Arcadia Press Richlandtown book written by Richland Library members Dr. Robert Leight and Thomas Moll, librarian. Other Arcadia Press authors will be present to sign copies of the new East & West Rockhill Township Book and also Perkasie Borough Book.
