Book, Bake and Bloom Sale

Block Island is just waking up around Memorial Day Weekend, with the Block Island Express beginning service from New London and the weather warming to the point where an early-season weekend trip might be in order. And if you’re looking for a good excuse to go, how about the Book, Bake and Bloom Sale. at the Island Free Library? 

The event is a reminder that, beyond a vacation paradise, Block Island is essentially a small town  -- and the Library is the island’s year-round center of culture and entertainment, offering everything from cribbage games to knitting to kids’ yoga classes. The Book, Bake and Bloom Sale is a raucous fundraiser with book tables, cupcakes and cookies, and blooming plants for sale from 9 am to 1 pm. While it’s a library fundraiser, don’t expect and quiet and studious atmosphere. “It’s a crazy day,” say folks who have been to previous BBB events. But in a good way.

Everything you buy benefits programs that take place at the library all year long. For more information, visit the library website:
