Elting Memorial Library Fair October 1
October 1 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The 65th Elting Memorial Library Fair will take place on Saturday, October 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the huge book sale continuing on Sunday, October 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair is held in the library parking lot, at the corner of North Front and Church streets in New Paltz.
There will be thousands of books for all ages and interests as well as CDs and DVDs — all at bargain prices. Entry to the fair is free, or shop for books as an early bird on Saturday at 8 a.m. for $10.
The fair also offers jewelry, plants, toys and games for sale; kids’ activities, a bookmark contest; a silent auction and lots of food and live music all day. Featured is the popular raffle, with more than 100 prizes generously donated by local businesses. Prizes include gift certificates to restaurants, shops and services, such as auto repair and massage therapy. Grand prize is a two-day midweek stay for two at Mohonk Mountain House. Purchase raffle tickets online before the fair or at the library and they will be sold at the fair until 2 p.m., when the drawing starts.
