ROYALSTON — Friends of the Royalston Library will hold a Plant and Book Sale and Royalston Historical Society will hold an Upscale-Tag-Sale on Saturday, May 29, from 8:30 until 11:30 a.m. at the Historical Society Building (Post Office and Old School House #1), 1 On the Common, in Royalston. From arugula to zucchini, asters to zinnias, agrimony to veronicastrum, expect the usual, unusually great selection of perennials, veggies, and herbs, with a smattering of fruits, bulbs, houseplants, natives and rarities sold with solid advice.

This year, organizers say they have even more plants, thanks to Prospect Hill Farm, which has downsized and donated many common and rare culinary, decorative, and medicinal herbs and perennials.

Fill a bag with books and make a free-will donation. The books, resulting from donations and the culmination of a year of weeding while the library was closed for browsing, are all sorted and will be spread out for easy selection.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Phinehas S. Newton Library, proceeds from the plant and book sale support the Library and its programs as well as publish the Royalston Community Newsletter. An upscale tag sale with choice items donated by community members and a varied collection of attic and clean-out treasures will be available at reasonable prices. Knowledgeable antiques personnel will be on hand to answer questions. This sale will benefit the ongoing renovation projects at the Society building.

Museum open for tours

The Historical Society Museum will be open for tours during the sale. Masks will be required in the building. Stop by and get all you need to start or expand your garden, read on a rainy or black fly-riddled day, and maybe even something to sit on while you read. In case of rain, only the plant sale and the museum tours will be offered.
