FAIR: Saturday, June 8, 10-3
BAG SALE: Sunday, June 9, 10-2
Join us for the 73rd Annual Library Fair on Saturday, June 8 from 10 am to 3 pm, rain or shine, on the Library grounds. The festivities will include a giant book sale, wonderful plant sale, children’s activities, craft and gift booths, food and drink, and entertainment all day. The Bag Sale, offering a bag of books for $10 will take place on Sunday, June 9, from 10-2.
The main event of the Fair is Books! Displayed under the large striped tent, the selection will include everything from novels to history, cook books, biographies, poetry, plus a collection of art and specialty “coffee table” books.
Gardeners, experts and beginners alike, will find flowering annuals and perennials, herbs and heirlooms as well as plants donated from botanically gifted patrons. And sensational daylilies in a variety of colors and shapes will be on sale at great bargain prices. By mid-May, plant donations can be dropped off in the little garden behind the wrought-iron gate, and we will water them until the Fair. And perennial favorites–strawberry shortcake, root beer and coffee floats will be back by popular demand, reminding us of the good ol’ summertime. Coffee, tea and home-baked treats will be here to take home or munch on the spot.
Lots of children’s games and activities, as well as a lovely selection of children’s books
will be available for our young fair-goers.
Live music will be playing all day, with Trio Mio kicking off the festivities at 10, followed by Kurt and Cheryl at 11, BLOOM and The B2s directed by Debbie Lan at Noon, Breakaway with Robin Baker at 1, with the Rondout Valley Vocal Jazz Ensemble directed by Lucas Rau joining us for a rousing finale.
Gifts and tableware, as well as art and jewelry will be available for purchase; and the Stone Ridge Saturday Knitters will be on hand to demonstrate and sell their handmade goods.
The Stone Ridge Library Foundation will host a wine raffle, and the 50/50 cash raffle will be back!
On Sunday, the Bag Sale will be open from 10am to 2pm, with a bag of books selling for $10.
Parking will be available at the High Meadow School, Key Bank, Express Tech Printing, and George Moylan’s Funeral Home thanks to our generous neighbors. The State Police have been invited once again to help with traffic control.
No dogs will be allowed at the Fair this year. As much as we love our pooches, the Fair is not the best environment for them, and we are asking everyone to leave the little four-legged friends home safe and sound this year. Thanks for your cooperation.
“We hope that everyone will come out to enjoy the festivities on this 73rd Library Fair said Director Jody Ford. “The Fair is a wonderful community event, and we are thankful for all of our dedicated volunteers as well as the community that keeps it going strong.”
