Cobleigh Library Plant Sale

Friday, May 26 (10-5) and Saturday, May 27 (9-1), rain or shine at the library

“If you have a Library and a Garden you have all you need”

Our first Plant Sale is getting closer and will be a wonderful opportunity to restock your gardens and help support the Cobleigh Library Bookmobile at the same time.

Master Gardener Nanine Beard from Monument Garden and Design will be at the sale on Sat. 5/27 from 10 am to 1 pm to answer your gardening questions.

Folks from Community Waste Solutions will also join us to answer your questions about recycling and composting.

There will be a gardening book display in the library.

Please donate your extra vegetable starts, divided garden perennials, reseeding annuals, rooted branch cuttings, and houseplants of all descriptions.

If possible, use sterile, or clean solarized soil to prevent jumping worms and soil pathogens. To solarize soil all you have to do is let it stand in the sun for a few days.

Donations accepted starting May 24th at the library.  Transplant plants at least 10 days before you donate them. Label each plant, please.

Volunteers are needed to make this event a success. Contact Martha Tack  or Susan Kuecker  for more information or if you are interested in volunteering.

While we’re having summer fun, autumn will eventually be here and that means our annual Book Sale during the first weekend in October!

Preparations will be starting soon. We need book sorters who can unpack boxes of books and categorize them for the sale. Sorting takes place in the Lyndonville Town Office. If you can volunteer to sort books or work on the days of the sale, please contact Fallon Cole.

Dont’ forget to visit the library for books for lakeside and beach reading this summer.
