  • Friends of Rockland Library “Festival of Trees” Auction

    The Friends of Rockland Public Library are holding their annual “Festival of Trees” Silent Auction. There will be  over 30 tabletop trees on display, generously decorated by local businesses. Come visit the Library, all decked out for the holidays. Bidding starts at 1:00, and ends at 4:00. Stop in, have a warm cup of cocoa or cider, a treat (baked by our amazing Friends Bakers), and bid on your favorite tree(s)!

    The decorated trees will be “silent auctioned” off in conjunction with The Historic Inns of Rockland Holiday Tour, which takes place from 1:00 – 4:00. During the tour, people can visit the inns in the neighborhood of the library. Stop in at the LimeRock Inn, the Berry Manor Inn, and the Granite Inn. The inns will be decorated for the season, as a part of the Downtown Rockland Festival of Lights Celebration. All proceeds from the Tree Auction and House Tour will go directly to support our wonderful Rockland Public Library.

    As if hot cocoa, a warm fire in the fireplace, and our Tree Auction isn’t enough reason to stop by the library, on this same day, the Book Stop will have extended holiday shopping hours, from 10:00 – 4:00. Save a tree, support the library and buy gently used, excellent condition books! We have all genres! Books, DVDs, CDs, and audio books: all for $5 or less.

    We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity of the many businesses that happily agreed to decorate a tree for this fundraiser. Community support for our Library has never been so strong. The Friends of Rockland Public Library work tirelessly to raise both money and public awareness to support the Library. Want to have a great time right now while supporting the library? Come to the Historic Inns Holiday House Tour and the Festival of Trees Silent Auction on Saturday, November 24th. We look forward to seeing you there!
