Merryspring will hold a garden and nature book sale Saturday, April 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

As Merryspring continues to rehabilitate its library, many books that are duplicates or outdated editions are being weeded. Hundreds of reliable natural history and gardening books from annuals to Zinnias will be for sale at unbeatable prices, as well as a number of rare and antique books priced individually. An assortment of new books and gardening tools will round out the sale. All proceeds from the book sale will go directly to Merryspring.

The book sale will also function as a preview of the annual Merryspring plant sale on May 9 and 10. Visitors will be able to get the first peek at this year's plant stock and ask questions about what will be available.

Information on late spring and summer programs, such as Summer Ecology Camps, the annual Fairy Festival, Weekend Workshops, and Tuesday Talks will also be available.

Merryspring is located at the end of Conway Road just off Route 1 by the Hannaford plaza.
