Strawberry Social and Summer Book Sale – June 8

Save the date for Saturday, June 8th. (And note the following Saturday as the rain date.) The Friends of the Southborough Library will be combining two summer activities.

Strawberry Festival 2018 (cropped edited from Facebook)Last year, the return of the Strawberry Social to the Library was a great success.* A nice crowd showed up to enjoy the free desserts on the last Saturday in June.

This year, the Friends are moving it up to take place at our annual Summer Book Sale.

The Book Sale will run from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Come on in to stock up for summer reading – hardcovers, paperbacks, fiction of all genres, non-fiction, etc. Each child (including young adults) is entitled to one free book.

As usual, we’ll be offering sales for those who stuff a Friends of the Library bag. (Bring your old tote or buy a new one that day.)

If you like strawberries and cream – you’ll want to time the shopping to coincide with our Strawberry Social.

From noon to 2:00 pm, our volunteers will be dishing out free, fresh strawberry shortcakes. (Although, contributions to the Friends are always welcome.)

Both events will be outside in the front parking lot. That means, it’s not a “rain or shine” happening. So, while our fingers are crossed for another beautiful Saturday on June 8th – we’ve reserved June 15th as the backup rain date. (If that’s required, I’ll definitely be posting the news.)

*Last year’s event was a combined effort co-sponsored by the Rotary Club.

Strawberries and cream, and books? Can’t imagine a much nicer combination.
