The Friends Annual Friends Plant Sale will take place outside at The Newbury Town Library on Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 8:30am – 12:30pm. PLANT DONATIONS NEEDED are perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs, and small shrubs (please and thank you :-).

We are excited to hold this event this year and hope you are too!  If you are able to donate plants this year, please know your plant contributions not only help raise funds for the NTL’s  adult and children’s programming, they provide our community with a favorite event and lovely greenery.

Please bring all donations to the library by 5pm between Tuesday, May 18 and Friday, May 21, 2021 and leave them outside the main doors. Also, if possible, please provide a label indicating the plant name, color, and type of sun required. 

Masks will be required, as well as 6′ social distancing. Your support is greatly appreciated, and can’t wait to see you there!!
