Memorial Day Weekend Book and Plant Sale

May 29th, 9 AM to Noon

(rain date: May 30)


This will be the first in-person book sale since Oktoberfest 2019, so the amount of books that need new homes is significant! Furthermore, not a single one of the books, DVDs, or audio in this sale have been featured in any previous sale or auction.


Headed by Kristin Stevens, the Friends are collecting seedlings to sell alongside our books. If you would like to contribute, there is a giant collection of pots behind the Library into which you can deposit your extra bulbs or separated perennials. You can take a pot, put a plant in it, label it, and leave it outside the Library any time in the week before May 29th. For questions or help with plants, please email


The Friends call it a sale, but you get to take what you can and donate whatever you want. Especially when it comes to the books: please take as much as you can. They all have to go. I’m not carrying them back in…

This will be an outdoor event spread out around the Library in order to encourage proper social distancing. Masks will be required. There will be nitrile gloves and hand sanitizer available. Bags will be provided, and we ask that everyone browse with their eyes and not their hands. If it is interesting enough to touch, it is interesting enough to take home and rescue from imminent recycling!
