ROCKLAND — On Saturday, November 30, the Friends of Rockland Public Library will hold the annual “Festival of Trees” Silent Auction at the Library. During the day more than 30 decorated tabletop trees donated by local businesses, including Jess’ Market, the Good Tern, and In Good Company, will be on display.
Bidding on the individual trees will begin at 1 p.m. and end at 4 p.m.
Everyone is invited to visit the Library, which will be all decked out for the holidays, to have a warm cup of cocoa or cider, treats baked by the Friends bakers, and to bid on your favorite tree(s)! In addition, The Book Stop, home of gently used books, will also be open from 1 to 4 p.m. for holiday shoppers.
The decorated trees will be auctioned in conjunction with The Historic Inns of Rockland Holiday Tour. During the tour, people can visit the Limerock Inn, the Berry Manor Inn, and the Granite Inn, which 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 the Rockland Public Library.
“We are truly grateful for the generosity of the many businesses that agreed to decorate a tree for this fundraiser,” said Friends, in a news release. “Community support for the Library has never been so strong. The Friends of Rockland Public Library work throughout the year to raise both money and public awareness to support the Library.
“If you want to have a great time while supporting your library, come to the Festival of Trees Silent Auction and Historic Inns Holiday House Tour on Saturday, November 30!”
