Annual Plant Sale

Sat. May 14, 9 till noon, Rain or shine. What makes this sale so unique is that almost every plant is donated to the sale by local gardeners. The most successful perennials are always in great abundance. If you would like to donate labeled plants, they can be dropped off in the library courtyard anytime during the week before the sale (May 7-13).
