WARDSBORO- The Friends of the Wardsboro Library are sponsoring two big events on Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 26, at 170 Main Street: the annual plant sale and a village tag sale. Admission and parking are free for both events, which will be held rain or shine.

The plant sale is from 9 am to 2 pm and will take place at the Wardsboro Library’s Red Barn on Main Street and on the Wardsboro Town Common. Reasonably priced perennials, hearty transplants, colorful annuals, Gilfeather turnip seedlings, and much more will be on display for shoppers. Members of the library Friends will also be available to assist gardeners with their selections. A special garden raffle will feature two Adirondack chairs, handcrafted by Ken Hoffman, of Townshend. Tickets can be purchased at the plant sale or the Wardsboro Library before the event. Tickets can also be printed off the Friends’ website at The winning ticket will be drawn at 2 pm at the plant sale; both chairs will be awarded to one winner.

New this year is a village tag sale beginning at 9 am in the back-yard of the Wardsboro Library. Vendors will offer varied merchandise including crafts and tag sale items and keep the proceeds of all sales. Limited spaces are still available for $25; bring a table and tent. For more information or to reserve a space call Linda at (802) 896-9490.

The Wardsboro Library trustees will hold the annual bake sale on the Town Common on Saturday, May 26, beginning at 9 am until all the goodies are sold. On the common, shoppers will find the Friends’ Flower Cart filled with annuals as well as the bake sale tent, first stop before moving down Main Street to the rest of the plant sale, the garden raffle, and the village tag sale.

These events are fundraisers for the Friends of the Wardsboro Library, a nonprofit organization that supports the Wardsboro Public Library. Visit for more information.
