The 25th Street Market Restarts in May

There will be no Authors & Illustrators event in May.

But we’d like to alert you to the fact that the 25th Street Market starts again—on  Saturday, May 7, the day before Mother’s Day!

There will be early-season vegetables and vegetable and plant starts available. In addition, our non-produce vendors will have many, lovely hand-made items available. Treat your mom to a quality hand-crafted item made by one of the artisans in your very own community. It will mean so much more than a mass-produced item made in China.

The Friends will sell hanging baskets and herb starts. They will be available at a good price and will be a fundraiser. If you are going to buy any of these items anyways, then please come and support your local library with your purchase on May 7!

See you there!
