SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 8:00AM to 2:00PM
TOWN-WIDE TAG SALE
TO BENEFIT THE LIBRARIES OF HOPKINTON

On Saturday, September 14, from 8AM to 2PM, there will be a town-wide tag sale sponsored by Hopkinton’s two public libraries: Langworthy and Ashaway.

Here’s how it works:
Sellers pay a $20 registration fee which will secure a numbered spot on the tag-sale map and two official signs so buyers will be able to find them easily.  A seller can be a resident or business and may briefly describe what will be offered for sale, for example: furniture, toys, housewares, etc.  Sellers price their own goods and keep their profits.

Between 7:30AM and 12 noon on the morning of September 14, buyers can go to one of the libraries to purchase a map for $2.00.  The map will include addresses of sellers and the descriptions of their wares.

The town-wide tag sale will happen rain or shine.

To participate, stop at the Ashaway Free Library at 15 Knight Street in Ashaway or at Langworthy Library at 24 Spring Street in Hope Valley during regular hours to pick up a registration form.  If you prefer, you can download the form by clicking HERE.

Deadline for seller registration is Saturday, September 7.

All proceeds, excluding printing and publicity costs, will benefit the libraries of the town of Hopkinton.

OUR NEW COMMUNITY ROOM IS COMPLETE!

 

Thank you to all of our patrons and friends for bearing with us during construction.

 

One change is still in place for a short time longer:

 

We are continuing to use the green book drop at the edge of the parking lot.  Within the next couple of weeks, we will start using the through-wall book drop that is accessible near the new entrance.

 

Thank you again to the whole “village.”  If you haven’t seen the new room yet, please stop by and check it out!
