A spring tradition returns for the 56th year with the Library’s Annual May Fair and Book Sale on Saturday, May 13th from 10 AM until 3 PM.

UPDATE: Pay no attention to the forecast. May Fair is ON, rain or shine! See you Saturday!

The Fair offers treasures for kids and their parents; gardeners and gourmands; book browsers and craft lovers. Fair Chairperson Kaitlin Gurney has planned a day with something for everyone!

The centerpiece of the day is the Book Sale; one of the best in the area. With thousands of volumes for every taste. Book Sale Chair Harwood Johnson and Vice-Chair Jon Lichtenstein report that a “mountain of books” will be available for your perusal. The Book Sale kicks off with a private sale for Library corporation members on Friday evening and continues through the weekend.

Erin Walsh and her team will again transform the parking lot into a carnival, with games and prizes for kids, who will also get to see a fire truck up close.

Gabrielle and Greg Miller have organized an assortment of vendors; crafters, artists and others who will set up in the Reference Room. Attic Treasures Chairperson Jennifer Reynolds has curated a special silent auction with items culled from the finest attics in town. You’ll find the perfect Mother’s Day gift among the great pins, necklaces, bracelets and earrings that abound at the Costume Jewelry Counter, displayed for browsing by Donna Ferruzzi and team. Lovely planters also make a nice gift for Mom, so be sure to check out Connie Watson’s Plant Sale.

Plan to stay for lunch. A crack team of grill masters has been organized by Heather D’Onofrio to serve up lunch and Beth Noto has tapped our community’s best bakers for contributions to the Bake Sale.


Countdown to May Fair!








The May Fair and Book Sale will take place rain or shine.
