Christmas in July at Friends Book Sale


The Weaver Library Farmers Market will again feature a pop-up book sale by the Friends of the East Providence Library. The mini book sale will be held on Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. from June 30 to September 15. Members of the Friends will offer a variety of novels and non-fiction books.

New this year will be an additional book cart of special themed books each month. To allow patrons ample time to prepare for the holiday season, the month of July will feature “Christmas in July” books. A selection of books focusing on how to make hand-crafted gifts, decorations and ornaments will be available, as well as books on crafts, knitting, crocheting and sewing projects. During National Picnic Month in August, cookbooks will be available with recipes for grilling, barbecuing and outdoor dining. September – National Happy Cat Month - will feature an array of cat mysteries for feline lovers.

This summer-long outdoor event will allow the Friends to provide a variety of book selections for all ages and interests. Hard and soft cover books will be available for $1. Young adult and children’s books are $.50 each. All children are welcome to choose free soft cover books to take home. Adults can take home a complimentary soft cover cookbook to try out new recipes with Farmers Market fresh produce and other offerings. Proceeds from the book sale benefit library programs, including museum passes, special concerts and events.
