9AM to 1PM

It’s doesn’t seem possible, but it’s that time of year again–The Ashaway Free Library’s Book, Bake, and Plant Sale is just around the corner!

Stop by the library (15 Knight Street, Ashaway) on Saturday, May 19, from 9am to 1pm to browse our thousands of books that have been expertly curated by our sorting volunteers, Betsy Mercer and Barbara Capalbo.  We’ll also have hundreds of plants for sale, and we always have a knowledgeable gardener or two around to help you choose the best plants for your yard.  And don’t miss the delicious baked goods!  Snack while you shop or take some treats home for dessert.

Books, plants, and baked goods will be sold on a “pay what you wish” basis. Shoppers who aren’t sure how much to pay for books and baked goods can think about what the items would cost in the store, what the items are worth to them, how much they can afford, and how much their donation helps the Library. A suggested price list for plants will be available.

This year we will also host our second annual White Elephant Sale.  Individuals can purchase space for $25, bring a table and their goods to sell. Space is limited so please call the Library at 377-2770 for more information.

Book donations are still welcome anytime during library hours. Donations of baked goods or potted plants can be dropped off at the Library before 5pm on Friday, May 18, or by 8am on Saturday, May 19.

The sale goes on rain or shine, so we’ll see you soon at the Ashaway Free Library!
