FORT PLAIN — Bookworms, green thumbers, and garage sale enthusiasts can land themselves some real finds at the Fort Plain Free Library’s fourth annual Book, Bake and Plant Sale from May 17, through 19, according to a news release.

Piggybacking on the community’s village-wide garage sales, the library’s three-day event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the landmark’s 19 Willett St. location.

In addition to books, magazines, crafts, baked goods, and a wide range of plants, there will be a “white elephant sale.” On May 19, there will also be a variety of baked goods for sale, and children can participate in a free craft project at the “kids’ creation station.”

Proceeds of the grassroots event go to the library’s operating budget and will be used for book purchases, programming, and general operations. In conjunction with this fundraiser, the library is still accepting donations for personalized, engraved paving stones that make up the new entranceway. Paving-stone contributions help pay for improvements to the facility.

To donate books, plants or garage sale items or for more information about the fundraisers, please call (518) 993-4646 or visit the 19 Willett St. library.
