LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- The 55th annual Lewisboro Library Fair will be held rain or shine, on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Onatru Farm Town Park.
The fair highlight is the book sale, but it also features “Attic Treasures” and toy sales, a silent auction, food, music, vintage cars, kids’ games, local vendors and an amazing corn maze.
The fair pre-sales, also held at Onatru Farm, are a great warm-up to fair day. The book and toy pre-sale, for residents only, is Thursday, Sept. 24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. All proceeds go directly into the library operating budget, which funds new materials and programs to benefit the entire community.
In advance of the event the library is looking for volunteers for both before and on fair day, vendors to fill open spaces, sponsors for the event and items to be donated for the various tag sales.
If you are available to help collect donations at Onatru on Saturday mornings in August and on Sept. 12 or work at the book pre-sale or fair, you can sign up at the library or online.
Vendor spaces are available for $80 each and also available free of charge to community organizations. For more info contact Christine McKenna at 845-661-3887 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local businesses and individuals are needed to underwrite the costs of producing the fair, such as tent rentals, food and music, so more proceeds can go directly to the operating budget. If you are interested in being a named sponsor, please call Cindy Rubino at 875-9004 or 763-3857.
Donations of books, toys and items for the fair’s attic treasures tag sale will be accepted every Saturday in August and on September 12. Donations can be dropped off at Onatru Farm from 10 a.m. to noon on these days only. Books must be in good condition. No condensed books, text books, encyclopedias or magazines.
For attic treasures we are seeking gently used furniture, toys, bicycles, artwork, kitchen and sports equipment. Items MUST be in working condition. We do not accept videotapes, upholstered furniture, computers and accessories, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, televisions, stuffed animals, downhill skis or exercise machines.
