The Annual Plant, Book & Bake Sale Is Almost Here!

Plant, Book and Bake Sale – Saturday, June 5

Baxter Memorial Library is preparing for our annual Plant, Book & Bake Sale on Saturday, June 5th!  That’s right, it’s back, and you – and your plants, books, and baked goodies – are invited! 

Plant Donations

Right now, we’re asking gardeners to contribute whatever they grow best: perennials, annuals, veggies or houseplants – all are welcome.  If you’d like assistance digging plants to donate, we have volunteers to help.  Drop off donated plants in the back of the library Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, June 4.  Email questions to or give us a call at 763-2875.

Book Donations

Have books, DVDs, or audiobooks on CD that are looking for new homes? We’d love to have them for our sale! You can drop off items the week of the sale: June 1 – June 4, 12-6pm. Please don’t leave donations on the porch. Because finding homes for unwanted books is extraordinarily difficult these days, we are only able to accept sellable items in good condition:

What We Can Accept

• Hardbacks in good condition
• Paperbacks in good condition
• DVDs
• Audiobooks on CD

What We Can’t Accept

• Encyclopedias
• Textbooks
• Computer manuals
• Travel guides
• Condensed books
• Magazines
• Vinyl records or cassette tapes
• VHS tapes
• Items in poor condition

Baked Goods Donations

Want to help the library by baking something scrumptious?  We’re looking for pies, tea breads, cookies, cakes, bars, or anything else that would satisfy a sweet tooth!  Please let Shana know what you plan to contribute by emailing the library or calling 763-2875.
