Youth Flea Market- Saturday, October 2, 2021

Poultney’s annual Youth Flea Market is a fun opportunity for kids to become entrepreneurs. This year we are moving the event to autumn, and it will be held Saturday, October 2nd from 9am-1pm outside the Poultney Public Library.

This fun event is open to kids and teens up to age 18, and is a great opportunity for them to earn some money while practicing business and math skills. Popular ideas in the past have included selling unwanted toys, selling handmade jewelry, holding bake sales, lemonade stands, and art sales. Please come out and support these young salespeople!

There is a $5 registration fee per spot. Registration forms may be picked up at the Poultney Public Library. Registration forms are due to at the Poultney Public Library by end of business on October 1st.  Registrants must bring their own tables. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are you having your book sale?

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, our 2021 Book Sale has been cancelled. We do have a small ongoing book sale on several carts inside the library.

Can I donate books for book sale?

We are not able to take donations of books and movies for our sale at this time. All library returns are going through a cleaning process. Attempting to add donations to the process would be more than we have space or man hours to handle.

Our 2021 Summer Reading Program ends on August 31. Thank you to everyone that made it a huge success! Stay tuned for information on our 2022 program.
