Friends of the Richmond Beach Library will be hosting its 53rd annual Arts and Crafts Sale at the Richmond Beach Library on Saturday, May 11, from 10am to 5pm. The show features handcrafted items, including jewelry, textiles, ceramics, glass, photography and original art, and a raffle. Come meet local artists on Friday, May 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. and enjoy light appetizers and quartet music provided by Shorewood High School.

The Friends’ May Book Sale is the perfect place to take care of all your summer reading needs. The sale offers titles for every interest, including fiction, mysteries and thrillers, history, inspirational, cookbooks, gardening, children's books, and DVDs and CDs, and many more subject areas.

A highlight of the sale is the Collectible section, featuring rare and unusual titles, along with the Northwest section devoted to local publications. For 2019, the FRBL has committed nearly $13,000 to support library services in children, teen and adult programs. This is made possible through the ongoing sale of books donated by the community. Book donations may be dropped off at the Richmond Beach Library.

Join the volunteer crew for the Strawberry Festival this year and combine community connection with getting to revel in the fresh air and lovely views our neighborhood park offers. If you are looking for a way to get involved that doesn’t mean a long-term commitment, join us for a few hours on Saturday, May 11. Volunteers are also needed on Friday, May 10, to prep strawberries.
