We sincerely regret to announce that the Friends of the Richards Library Annual Library Festival has been canceled this year due to concerns regarding the COVID pandemic. Hopefully next year things will be back to normal and we can pack our book tents elbow to elbow with our faithful buyers!
However, along with the annual Apple Pie Craft Fair held on the Newport Town Common by the Library Arts Center, the library will be hosting author Melanie Kirkpatrick, author of Lady Editor: Sarah Josepha Hale and the Making of the Modern American Woman. Ms. Kirkpatrick will be on the Common from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for a book signing (books will be available for purchase, supplied by Morgan Hill Bookstore). Stop by to say hello! From 2:00 to 3:00 PM, join us under the library tent for a presentation given by Ms. Kirkpatrick. Hope to see you there!
