Books & Blooms Sale at North Chatham Free Library, May 18

2019-BandB-Poster-jpeg-463x600The North Chatham Free Library’s annual Books & Blooms fundraiser will be held this Saturday.  This popular event happens on the grounds of the library, and on the front lawn will be an array of plants (annuals and perennials) from popular area nurseries.  Many of the plants will be displayed on tables for easier viewing and sheltered under tents in case the weather isn’t cooperative. 

The lower level of the library will be well stocked with a selection of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books.   Most hardcovers are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00 and paperbacks are 50 cents each or 3 for $1.00.  Everything will be carefully arranged by category so buyers can easily focus on the titles which interest them the most.  Jigsaw puzzles, DVDs, games, music, and audio books will also be available.

Delicious baked goods will stock the bakery café along with freshly brewed coffee, tea, water, and juices.  Tables and chairs will be set up for patrons who would like to socialize on the back lawn of the library while enjoying a muffin or cookie.  You can also take some goodies home to enjoy later on.

50/50 raffle tickets for $3 each or 4 tickets for $10 will be available with the winner’s name drawn at 1pm.  The lucky ticket holder takes half of the money collected for the raffle and the library takes the other half. Tickets are now being sold at the library and you don’t need to be present on May 18th to win.

This community event begins promptly at 9 AM but those who are anxious to begin sooner can start shopping at 8:30 for an early bird fee of $10.
