Library Fundraisers

The Friends and Trustees of the Library support a variety of programs and improvements to the library facility with funds raised at their annual events.


Spring Book, Bake, & Plant Sale

The Friends of the Essex Free Library will hold their Plant Sale on Saturday, June 5th from 9 to 2. Plants are donated by local gardeners and have proven their ability to survive and thrive in Vermont. We will happily accept donations starting June 1st. Pots for transplanting are available at the library. 

Annual Book Sale

The library's annual book sale, typically the first weekend in June, will be postponed until the fall. 

Fall Cozy Nook Craft Fair

This community event is held in the fall. Crafters and artists display their treasures on all three floors of the library, and baked goods beckon from the Circulation Desk. Proceeds benefit the Summer Reading Program.
