Platt Library to hold annual plant sale fundraiser June 11
SHOREHAM — Pick up a new book, purchase locally grown annuals and perennials, or indulge your sweet tooth with fresh rhubarb pie: Shoreham’s Platt Memorial Library is holding its annual book and plant sale on Saturday, June 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The annual fundraiser — a major source of support for the Shoreham library — will feature thousands of donated books, many DVD and VHS movies, and a selection of plants donated by local greenhouses and individuals. Among the plants for sale will be flowering annuals and perennials as well as herbs and succulents; and a master gardener will be on hand to answer gardening questions.
Shoreham’s best pie bakers will provide a taste of spring with rhubarb pie, available whole or by the slice; coffee and tea will also be available for sale. Additionally, visitors can purchase raffle tickets for a painting by Shoreham watercolor artist Deborah Holmes. Proceeds from the raffle, which will be drawn in September, will benefit the library’s building fund.
